University of Wyoming employees and students are invited to provide feedback on what they want Laramie’s downtown to be like in the future.
A short survey -- asking things such as, “What are the top issues facing downtown?” and “What business types would you like to see downtown?” -- is open through Thursday, Jan. 17, via www.laramiemainstreet.org.
The survey also may be accessed directly through this link: www.surveymonkey.com/r/KPBN3KX.
“We all have things we love about downtown and things we wish were different. This process is a great opportunity for our community, business owners, consumers, partners and volunteers to document their thoughts in a way that will influence our strategies moving forward,” says Laramie Main Street Director Trey Sherwood. “We value the perspective and feedback from the campus community and want to work hard to make downtown a place you are all proud of.”
As part of a refresh to the Main Street four-point approach -- economic vitality, design, organization and promotion -- Laramie Main Street will adopt “transformation strategies” with assistance from National Main Street and Wyoming Main Street. Based on broad community input, Laramie Main Street will adopt measurable strategies that, over the course of several years, will bring about positive, intentional change in downtown’s economy. The strategies will focus on expanding a specific type of business or meeting the needs of certain types of customers.
Survey results will be reviewed by the Laramie Main Street board at 5 p.m. Jan. 22 at 115 Ivinson Ave. during a visit with National Main Street staff. For more information about the “transformation strategy” process or to get involved, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
