Business Survey

What Should be the Focus of Downtown? 

The Milton-Freewater Downtown Alliance requested the input of businesses, residents and visitors concerning the focus of our downtown. Should the focus be kids & family, food & entertainment, art, antiques, music, wine, or something else?  What changes are needed for you to spend more time in our downtown?  MFDA will be working diligently during the next few years to make downtown a place where our residents and visitors will want to hangout and enjoy themselves. An online survey was conducted from December 2018 to February 2019 to gain insight to these questions.  The results of this survey can be viewed by clicking the link.
