Down Town Survey

The City of Ashland is looking for input about downtown Ashland, and will share the results with community partners and businesses. The goal of the survey is to inform local leaders about how residents are currently utilizing the downtown, what aspects they particularly enjoy, what businesses and services they wish to see, and what can be done to improve and complement downtown experiences. The answers you provide will then be used to guide decision-making and prioritize projects in the future.    

There will hard copies available in the July issue of Bottom Line News and Views, the Bretting Community Center, the Vaughn Public Library, and City Hall. An online version is also available at                        

For the purposes of this survey, the downtown is defined as West Main Street from Ellis Avenue to 9th Avenue West, as identified in the Comprehensive Plan. 

The survey takes about 10-15 minutes to complete, and is anonymous. Please return completed surveys to City Hall (601 Main St W), Vaughn Public Library (502 Main St W), or Bretting Community Center (400 4th Ave W) by Friday August 9th, 2019. If you have any questions please email us at or call 715-682-7041.  

Please encourage your friends, family, and neighbors to take this survey as well. You do not have to live in Ashland, WI to take this survey, but knowledge of the area is necessary.  

Thank you for your input!
