Lancaster Village officials unveiled a public survey Monday night that they hope will help turn the wheels on the stalled development of its downtown district.
The survey, part of the economic feasibility study piloted by LaBella Associates, is designed to help ensure that development decisions mirror the public's perceptions of downtown as well as the types of new businesses and improvements desired, officials said.
The survey is available online. Copies will be available at the Lancaster Library, 5466 Broadway and Village Hall, 5423 Broadway, said Trustee Lynne Ruda. Officials are also exploring the cost of a direct mailing to residents.
"Whether you are a village resident, county resident or visiting the area, please take a few minutes to fill out the survey," said Lynne Ruda, village trustee. "The public can directly impact what happens downtown."
Ruda hoped to collect 10,000 completed surveys.
