Business Retention Survey

Dear Business Owner,

In an effort to support the Village of Westchester’s 2012 Strategic Plan, the Economic Development Committee created a village business survey to assess the needs of village business owners. The goal is to create a thriving local economy by maximizing the potential of local businesses. By supporting local businesses, we can help grow a diverse local economy, stabilize our tax base, and create a strong and vibrant business community.

Primary objectives of the survey include the understanding of:

  • The challenges and opportunities for Westchester businesses
  • Availability of business assistance within the community
  • Strengths and Weaknesses of Westchester as a place to conduct business
  • Perceptions of local barriers for retention, expansion and attraction of business
  • Probability of business expansion, relocation, closure or sale.

The survey should only take 3-5 minutes of your time and will help the Village determine what programs will be of assistance to our business community.
