County Survey Seeks Input to Attract New Businesses and Industries to Valley

Clark County is asking residents to complete an online survey, which will be used to develop a plan to attract new businesses and industries to Southern Nevada, and identify how residents view the County today and what they would like to see in the future.

The survey is available at and should take 15-20 minutes to complete. The survey is anonymous and does not require a name or address from anyone completing it.

“We want to know what you think makes Southern Nevada a special place to live, work and play,” Commissioner Justin Jones said. “This survey will help us position Clark County to attract new businesses and further diversify our economy.”

Local officials have identified several industries as targets for economic recruitment efforts including business and financial services, general and advanced manufacturing, and healthcare; all of which provide above average wages.

The survey will be used to create vision, marketing and outreach plans. North Star Place Branding + Marketing is the County’s consultant for the marketing and outreach plan. North Star is a national place branding and marketing agency that specializes in economic development and has worked with more than 200 communities in 44 states.
