Mason Co. Residents, Businesses, and Nonprofit Organizations Asked to Take Survey

The West Michigan Shoreline Regional Development Commission (WMSRDC), in partnership with the Ludington & Scottville Area Chamber of Commerce and other economic development agencies in neighboring counties, have released three short online surveys to document impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic upon local businesses, public and nonprofit organizations, and households.

The documentation of local pandemic impacts may be useful for accessing various types of state and federal assistance for pandemic recovery. In addition, survey information will help planners identify anticipated additional impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and identify potential strategies for coping with future pandemics or other economic disruptions.

The surveys “went live” in late September and are currently available to the public on the homepage. Each survey, which generally takes about 5 minutes to complete, will remain open through mid-November.

All survey responses will remain anonymous. Following the survey period, results will be aggregated into a summary report that will be free to view and download from the WMSRDC website before the end of the year.
