Get happy in Nevada City on March 23

Russ Steele

With Nevada City’s March Unemployment 2 points (11.8) above County as a whole (9.8), local business struggling to stay afloat, and city government facing economic challenges they never anticipated,  Nevada City is trying to boost it’s Happiness Index with a survey.

Can you measure happiness? Nevada City Happiness Initiative thinks so. In association with Nevada City Sustainability Team and Woolman Semester students, it is releasing the first comprehensive survey of happiness in this region, as part of this exciting new initiative. From March 23rd to April 6th, Nevada City residents can take the Happiness survey that could ultimately be used to craft city policy. Though the survey will be open to all Nevada County residents, Nevada City city officials will extrapolate city residents’ anonymous survey results only

I can save them a lot of time and effort, happiness is when the citizens of Nevada City are NOT feeling….

    • self doubt
    • depressed
    • hateful
    • fearful
    • worried
    • unsatisfied
    • bored
    • grief
    • shame
    • guilt
    • discontent
    • anxious
    • annoyed
    • angry
    • irritated
    • stressed
    • frustrated
    • envious, or
    • jealous.

Apparently Nevada City citizens are being besotted by one, or all of the above, and they are planning to solve the issue with a happiness survey?  How sad!
