Community Survey for the Village of Whitehall Comprehensive Plan

This survey is intended to obtain feedback for the Village of Whitehall Comprehensive Plan which is currently being prepared. A comprehensive plan is a document designed to guide the future actions of a community. It presents a vision for the future, with short and long-range goals and objectives for all activities that affect the community. Your input is important and will be used to guide the development of the plan. The following survey should take less then 10 minutes to complete. Please note that this survey is confidential.

In addition to the survey an interactive public workshop will be held on May 16th. There will be an information booth set up at the Chamber of Commerce office at 130 Main Street, a streetscape design demonstration along Williams Street, and a public workshop and presentation at the Village and Town Courtroom starting at 5 PM. You are encouraged to attend any part of this event.
