Where do you like to shop and dine on Great Road? What kinds of businesses and amenities do you want more of?
The Town of Bedford is seeking input from residents in Bedford and neighboring communities as well as workers in the area. We are interested in attracting and retaining desired businesses in the commercial areas of the Great Road Corridor. The results of the survey will be used to inform economic development efforts on Great Road. The results will also be shared with the consultant for the Great Road Zoning Project that the Bedford Planning Board will commence in October.
The online survey is available by clicking https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/GreatRoad
The Great Road Corridor encompasses the commercial areas on Great Road (zoned for business/retail uses) from the intersection of Shawsheen Road to the North Road area in Bedford. The areas are highlighted on the map shown above.
The Bedford Economic Development Office secured Massachusetts Community Compact grant funding to develop the survey with assistance from the economic development consultant, Fine Point Associates.
