Woodstock EDC Seeks Small Businesses To Complete Survey

The Economic Development Commission (EDC) has created an on line survey aimed at for-profit business owners and managers to help them better understand local business issues. Many businesses have received notice of the survey through email from the Chamber of Commerce, the Rotary and other organizations. The survey is accessible by going to the Chamber of Commerce web site: www.woodstockvt.com. Businesses will see a reference to the business survey and can follow the link to take the survey.
The EDC is especially interested in hearing from small, home based businesses that might not be affiliated with any of the local business organizations and consequently have not received an email notification. The confidential survey should take no more than ten minutes to complete and will be open until April 7. If any business owner or manager would prefer to complete a hard copy of the survey, they can be picked up at the Town Manager’s office in the Town Hall.
Last year, the Woodstock Town Select Board and Village Trustees established the Woodstock Economic Development Commission to help them plan and implement sustainable economic development in Woodstock. One of the main tasks of the nine-member commission is to encourage and help existing and new business prosper, create more job opportunities and become move environmentally conscious.
The results of this survey will be a great help to the EDC as it determines how to best work with the Town and Village to support business needs. When completed, the EDC will make the survey results available to the public through the local business organizations, such as the Chamber of Commerce and the Rotary as well as through the Vermont Standard.
