Milledgeville Main Street

The Milledgeville Main Street/Downtown Development Authority (DDA) Board of Directors is seeking the public’s input to help guide decision-making and planning for downtown in the coming years. 

The organization has published an online survey open to anyone who wants to give thoughts on downtown Milledgeville. The survey is available until Jan. 14.

“The data is analyzed and used in the planning process for the Main Street/DDA Board of Directors,” Main Street Director Carlee Schulte said. “We use the information to see what the community is looking for in their downtown and plan our program of work around what we learn from the surveys.”

Schulte added that this process is carried out every three years. The last one conducted in 2018 resulted in new alleyway lighting being installed, the creation of the small downtown plaza on Hancock Street, way-finding signage, updated branding, and the Downtown Doers volunteer program. 

Responses in this most recent survey have already outnumbered those three years ago at more than 360, but Schulte has tacked an additional week onto the survey’s availability in hopes of surpassing 500. 

“The more input received, the better able the board of directors will be to shape strategies that will link vision to action and community engagement to long-term economic vitality specific to historic downtown Milledgeville,” a portion of a Main Street press release reads. 

The survey takes only a couple of minutes to fill out and asks questions like where the responder lives (area of the community, not address), age, gender, race, frequency of visits downtown, and types of businesses that should be added to the area. Responders may choose whether or not to include their e-mail address when they start the survey.

The public has until Friday, Jan. 14 to give its input, and the survey can most easily be accessed by visiting the Milledgeville Main Street Facebook page.
