As work on Illinois 255 wraps up the Village of Godfrey is getting a jump start on planning for its future by putting together a plan that Godfrey can use to pitch its "brand" to new businesses looking at the village. Part of that plan is to survey anyone who lives, works, or even passes through the village. Those surveys were e-mailed to a number of people late last week, and you can also take the survey on line through August 5.
Monica Bristow of the Riverbend Growth Association says finding out what people think of the village is a crucial step in the re-branding process.
Mayor Mike McCormick and other leaders have been working with North Star Destination Strategies for the last several months and are hoping to use this survey to learn more about how people perceive Godfrey. You can take the survey here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/GodfreyCommunity
