Community Survey

The Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs at Ohio University is working with the City of Wellston, Ohio to develop a retail market study. As part of this effort, we are seeking to better understand the nature of tourism and visitors in Wellston, including travel patterns and lodging, consumer spending, and if there is demand for specific retail sectors.

This survey is designed to take less than 5 minutes to complete. All responses are anonymous and only general findings will be published in the final report or any publicly-available materials. Your participation is entirely voluntary, you may skip any questions that you prefer not to answer, and you can stop at any time without penalty.

Should you have any questions about this survey, you can reach Dr. Jason Jolley at jolleyg1@ohio.edu or Dr. Gilbert Michaud at michaudg@ohio.edu.
