Sewickley nonprofit asking: What brings you to town?

Shop Sewickley? Village Green Partners want to hear from you.

The nonprofit group marketing Sewickley's business district is seeking responses to a three-question survey asking shoppers what brought them here.

The survey is online and available by paper form in some stores across the business district, Village Green co-founder Jennifer Markus said.

The group — which markets the business district using tax dollars and private money — began distributing the survey earlier this month and plans to continue through September, she said.

A 2010 survey received more than 1,000 responses, and Markus said she wants to achieve similar numbers this year.

She said the goal for the survey is to understand shoppers in Sewickley.

“We are using this to find out who is visiting our businesses, where they are coming from and what types of things that people would like to see in Sewickley, so we can fine tune our business development and advertising efforts,” Markus said.

More than 100 responses have been collected already, she said.

“You'll find the answers very interesting. There's a lot of great stuff in there,” Markus said.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
