The following survey is being conducted by Giffels Webster, a land planning consulting firm working with the Village of Sparta to better understand market conditions and foster a vibrant economy. Your input is extremely valuable to us. Sparta residents, neighboring residents who have an interest in the future of Sparta, those who are employed, shop, obtain services, or own businesses or property in Sparta are encouraged to complete the survey.

The survey is strictly confidential. You are not asked to provide nor do we have any way of identifying your name, address, or other specific information for the person or resident responding to the questionnaire. Please answer BASED ON YOUR TYPICAL EXPERIENCES PRIOR TO THE COVID-19 (coronavirus) EMERGENCY unless otherwise noted in the question.

Sparta, through Giffels Webster, has retained The Chesapeake Group to analyze the survey and provide an economic assessment.


Please take a few minutes to fill out the questionnaire. If you are uncomfortable answering any question, feel free to leave it unanswered and move on to the next one.

Thank you in advance for helping in this effort.
