Business Walk will Survey the Businesses on the Stoughton Road Corridor
Visiting up to 200 Businesses in Three Hours
On June 22nd, between 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., teams of local business and civic leaders will take part in a walking tour (Business Walk) of the Stoughton Road Corridor business community. There is major construction potentially slated for Hwy 51 and could impact a large number of businesses. A Business Walk is an economic development initiative that, in a short amount of time, allows local leaders to get the pulse of how their business community is doing. The goal of the Business Walk is to help create a unified voice, build a stronger relationship between the business community and local government, as well as, target and assist companies at risk to help foster a more prosperous business climate.
During this a half-day blitz, teams made up of city leaders and small business supporters will visit up to 200 businesses. A Business Walk gathers responses from business owners and managers asking them how’s business, what do they like about doing business on Stoughton Road, and what can be done to improve doing business on Stoughton Road. The survey responses help to generate a simple, easy-to-read report that decision makers can use to help strengthen their local business community. This program will then hopefully be a model for other Business Walks in other parts of the city and state.
