In effort to meet the needs of the businesses in our community, the Town of Essex has launched the Business Retention & Expansion (BR + E) survey. The survey will allow the Town to better understand the future plans and needs of local businesses and how business owners/managers view the community as a place to do business. The information from the survey will be used to plan future economic development activities focused on the top priorities of local businesses.
The Town of Essex has retained Deloitte LLP, to assist with the project. Deloitte will be working with Town Staff to review the completed surveys for challenges and opportunities that the local business community is facing. Businesses are encouraged to participate in the telephone survey and since selection is random, they may be contacted between September 12th and October 3rd. The survey should take no longer than 15 minutes to complete.
The project launched in August 2022 and is scheduled to last until October 2022 when all the results of the survey are gathered and analyzed.
