(Seguin) -- Posts on social networking sites are good but sometimes the real changes come via an old fashioned survey
. That's exactly how the Seguin Main Street Program is tackling plans for the future.
Whether it is the new Park Plaza Hotel Seguin, the future Seguin Brewing Company or last week's sale of the historic Aumont Hotel, the revitalization of Downtown Seguin is well on its way.
Main Street Director Kyle Kramm says with so much happening and so much still to come, the city is seeking public input on how to enhance its downtown.
"We have a survey that is live on Survey Monkey that they can take online or if they can't get online, they can come into our office and take a hard copy of the survey. The link is www.surveymonkey.com/r/downtownseguinvision
. It's about a 10 minute survey and basically, we just want to hear from you about what you want to see downtown -- what you like about downtown Seguin, what are some obstacles for you to come to downtown Seguin? What type of stores would you like to see in downtown? Also, how do you think our events are in downtown Seguin? It's just some general questions about downtown Seguin," said Kramm.
Kramm says on Thursday, June 2, the city and the Downtown Business Alliance of Seguin will be hosting a public downtown visioning workshop from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Park Plaza Hotel Seguin. He says joining the meeting will be the Texas Main Street Coordinator who will help the city sort through the many ideas and suggestions of the survey and plan accordingly.
"The results will help to build a work plan for downtown Seguin and create kind of like a vision that will be kind of a joint work plan between the Seguin Main Street Program and then also the Downtown Business Alliance of Seguin. So we can kind of take this vision and start running with it in transforming downtown into what our community really wants to see," said Kramm.
Again, the roughly 10 minute survey is available at www.surveymonkey.com/r/downtownseguinvision
. Hard copies can also be picked up at the Main Street office located next door to Seguin City Hall.
