In July 2022, the Wise County Office of Economic & Industrial Development distributed an informal online survey to gauge residents' experiences and opinions of downtown business districts within the county. The purpose of the survey was to collect public input for business development opportunities and downtown improvement efforts. A total of 608 individuals from the six town and one city area responded to the survey with 69% of respondents completing the survey in its entirety. The results shared in the report are organized by town and are representative of the feedback shared by survey respondents.
It is our hope that aspiring entrepreneurs and downtown property owners will utilize information in this report to launch a new business or make downtown retail space available for commercial use. View the full report linked below.
