What do you want to see in downtown Wheeling?
Wheeling Heritage has launched a survey to learn about the types of businesses you’d like to see in downtown Wheeling.
Click here to fill out the quick survey by July 31.
The results will help identify the types of retailers, restaurants and services that consumers would like to see downtown. Findings will also be a useful resource for businesses that are considering expanding into the growing downtown market.
Through Main Street West Virginia, Wheeling Heritage has been working with Downtown Professionals Network (DPN), as well as various partners, to create the survey. DPN, a firm specializing in research for downtown economic development, will analyze the results and provide business recruitment strategies.
“As we learn more about our residents and workers, we can better target our business development and training programs to help target the types of businesses people want to see here,” said Alex Weld, project and outreach manager at Wheeling Heritage, referencing the organization’s CO.STARTERS and Show of Hands programs.
The results will be shared with partners including the Regional Economic Development Partnership (RED), the City of Wheeling, and the Wheeling Area Chamber of Commerce, and will also be available to the public on Wheeling Heritage’s website.
