Decatur Issues Community Perception Survey


Decatur, Illinois – The Limitless Decatur & Macon County community marketing initiative is looking for feedback. Leaders have issued the community perception survey to gather feelings about the community’s performance in the areas of jobs, entertainment, education, safety, housing, and amenities.

“The first survey was issued in 2014, before the launch of the community marketing campaign to serve as a benchmark,” said Nicole Bateman, community marketing manager for the Economic Development Corporation of Decatur-Macon County. “The same survey was issued two years into the campaign and citizens were feeling measurably more positive about the community. We hope that people in the region will take the survey, as the results not only influence our marketing efforts, but also shape the direction of meaningful projects we tackle in the future.”

Bateman emphasized that people do not have to live in Macon County to take the survey. Leaders want to gather feelings of those living and working both inside and outside of the county.  

The online survey will be available until December 31st and takes less than 10 minutes to complete. It can be found at www.surveymonkey.com/r/decaturmaconcounty
