BUSINESS VISITATION SURVEY

We believe the well being of the residents of Stonewall depends upon a healthy, growing economy. Efforts to attract new employers and encourage others to start new businesses are important. However, we recognize that the expansion and retention of established businesses is the foundation of our economic development.

The objectives of this survey:
· Demonstrate that the community cares about and appreciates local business.
· Identify and help solve problems that area businesses are having.
· Set priorities for long-range business retention and expansion efforts.
· Create awareness of program/services.
· Build community capacity to sustain growth.

The initiative is sponsored by the Town of Stonewall, Stonewall & District Chamber of Commerce and Community Futures East Interlake. Community Futures East Interlake is providing technical assistance for this program.
