Snellville seeks input on economic development

SNELLVILLE -- One city needs a little help with the creation of its economic development strategic action agenda.

Snellville Economic Development Manager Eric Van Otteren created a survey for the community to help with the project.

"The purpose of this study is to prepare a competitive profile of the business environment within the city, and then outline a strategy to improve the business environment and support an entrepreneurial mindset throughout the community," he said in an email seeking input.

The questions include rankings on Snellville's competitiveness, availability of housing and financing and educational institutions. Direct questions on how the city could serve businesses in a one-stop shop are also included.

Th survey is not limited to Snellville residents but has been directed mostly to business leaders.

The survey is available online at www.surveymonkey.com/s/SnellvilleBusinessSurvey.
