West Dundee officials are encouraging residents and downtown stakeholders to participate in a Consumer Behavior Survey that will help to update the village's downtown master plan over the next nine months.
The survey is open to anyone with an interest in helping to shape the future of Downtown West Dundee.
Results of the survey, which will be posted on the project website in June, will guide community leaders and their consulting team of Hitchcock Design Group and Business Districts, Inc. as they collaboratively evaluate existing conditions and new opportunities for downtown.
Village President Chris Nelson said, "We are eager to learn more about how residents and other visitors use our downtown and what they expect when they visit. Along with the project website and several public events, we hope to capture a broad cross section of community input."
In addition to the survey, the public will be able to interact with the consulting team through the project website at www.wdundeedowntown.com and in person at a public workshop in late June.
The village recently engaged the consultant team to begin a comprehensive evaluation of the existing marketplace, resources and stakeholder interests in order to create a viable framework for public and private investment over the next 1-, 3- and 5-year time frames.
The consultant will develop a targeted market (brand) and recommend market-supported commercial, institutional and public magnet attractions and complimentary market-supported commercial, residential, institutional and public uses.
