The Village on Main Community Improvement District (CID) is a non-profit organization that envisions an inclusive and sustainable community in the Main Street-Tacoma area of Dartmouth.

Under the new Land Use By-laws, the District is approved for 4 million square feet of residential development in a dense, walkable community where parking is no longer a priority. We are seeking to determine alternative options to car ownership for the area as it transforms.

This survey will not ask you for any identifying information, so all responses will remain completely anonymous. Please feel free to contact us at (902) 407-3533 or welcome@villageonmain.ca with any questions or comments. Watch our transformation at www.villageonmain.ca

Thank you!
