The City of Sharon is sending out a survey to Sharon business owners and stakeholders to capture their input for the revitalization of the downtown area.

“We value the input of our downtown businesses,” said Bob Fiscus, Manager of the City of Sharon.

The survey includes questions regarding the kinds of businesses and recreation they believe would be a good collaborative fit with the businesses already there as well as attract more visitors, create more jobs and provide more services to the downtown.

A portion of the $14 million American Rescue Plan funding received by the city last year has been set aside to help attract new restaurants and retail businesses into Sharon, as well as strategic expansions of current businesses that would also help with attraction and revitalization.

Some of the survey results will be revealed at the Sharon Summer Downtown Events Showcase on May 10 held at Haitian Sensation.

This event is for Sharon business owners and interested stakeholders as well as members of the media to learn about upcoming events, share abouth their own, and discuss ways to get the most out of their businesses.
