County Survey Now Available at Libraries, Municipal Buildings-Residents, Employees and Shoppers Encouraged to Respond-

(Gloucester County, NJ) - Gloucester County is conducting a survey of Gloucester County residents, employees and shoppers as part of its Regional Retail Recruitment Plan.

In addition to being available online at, printed survey forms are now available at local municipal buildings, libraries, the County Store in the Deptford Mall and the Countys Budd Boulevard Building.  Respondents can mail completed surveys back postage-paid.

Freeholder Director Stephen M. Sweeney said that the survey will run through September.  The survey information, along with the merchant and community information gathered, will be used to help develop a community-driven plan of action to revitalize the retail environment in Gloucester County.

"We have already received over 2,700 online surveys, and we want to hear from anyone who lives, works or shops in Gloucester County," Sweeney said.  "We realize there are residents who would prefer to send their surveys in the mail and we encourage them to take a few minutes and stop by the County Store or their local library or municipal building and complete one."

 "The purpose of this initiative is to provide our municipalities with a strategic forecast to manage future retail development, assist with downtown revitalization and coordinate planned business development," said Joseph Brigandi, Jr., Gloucester County Freeholder Liaison.  "The more responses we receive the better equipped we will be to understand how we can make Gloucester County more appealing to everyone," said Brigandi.
