Downtown Lititz Community Perception Survey

Downtown Lititz Community Perception Survey

As we prepare for the future, the community is asked to supply their opinion on a series of standard perceptual questions about Downtown Lititz. The purpose of this survey tool is to get a better idea of how people feel about common attributes that contribute to a “sense of place” within a community and to guide Venture Lititz, the local Main Street Program, with potential downtown revitalization strategies. The questions are based upon a matrix for what constitutes a “place” that was developed by the Project for Public Spaces, and the survey is administered by the Pennsylvania Downtown Center.
This survey will be open until October 16th, your feedback is greatly appreciated.

Please click this link to complete the survey.
