The unprecedented challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic have changed many facets of our lives. Understanding how consumer behaviors are changing in both the short-, medium- and long-term is critical for business owners and economic development professionals as they look towards economic recovery.

The survey should only take 10 minutes to complete and your feedback would be invaluable to the local business community. NO INDIVIDUAL DATA will be used. Our local Business Recovery Task Force will be providing aggregate guidance to the community about what is learned through your responses. We deeply appreciate your time and input!
