Economic Development Survey - Public Input

I am reaching out to begin a discussion about the coming years of economic development for our region. As your state representative, one of my primary goals is to ensure that you have access to the funding necessary for the development of your community.

To that end, I require your input on the most pressing needs for you municipality so that we can craft a long-term economic development plan together. I’m asking you to complete the attached survey about the priorities in your area. I will aggregate the responses and compose a draft economic development plan which we can use to target applications for grants and other available funds.

Thank you,

Rep. Nick Pisciottano


Does your community have a dedicated economic development resource (i.e., part-time or full-time grant writer, community development corporation, outside grant consultant, etc.) ?

What types of businesses would be a good fit for your community?

How would you rate the public infrastructure (roads, bridges, waterways, utilities, etc.) in your community. Please rank from 1 to 10, with one being the worst and 10 being the best.

What are the top three biggest funding needs for your community?

What do you think are the biggest barriers to economic development in your community?

If you had $1 million in grant money tomorrow, what would you spend it on for your community?
