Bonney Lake asks residents to complete one-question business survey
The city of Bonney Lake is asking residents to complete a new survey regarding what types of businesses they would like to see move in to town.
According to Mayor Neil Johnson, the announcement this past week that the city’s Albertson’s is one of 60 stores nationwide scheduled for closure, along with recent discussions with other national chains that have shown interest in the region, prompted the administration to ask residents for their thoughts on the city’s business community.
“Since we have some property that is still available for commercial development, we can use this information to make contact with the various business interests and see if Bonney Lake is on their radar or (ask) what do we need to do to help bring other business to the area?” he said in an email. “At worst, we may get some additional information from these businesses that may help us modify our incentive packages.”
The one-question survey provides a list of potential businesses for residents to choose and also a space for suggestions not included on the list.
