Downtown survey deadline extended

The Rockdale Downtown Association still wants your feedback.

The RDA has extended the deadline on its Downtown Rockdale Opinion Survey from May 1 to May 28.

Chris Dyess, RDA president, said the deadline has been extended to “get as much feedback as possible” from the community.

There’s an incentive to fill out the survey.

Those completing the form may choose to provide a contact name and phone number and will be entered in a drawing for a $100 gift card to Brookshire Bros., Dyess said.

Dyess said the gift card can be used for either groceries or gas at the super market.

“The survey itself is anonymous and the contact information will only be used to contact the gift card winner.

He said the survey is brief and can be accessed by going to the City of Rockdale’s home page, www.rockdalecityhall.com or at www.surveymonkey.com/s/rockdaledowntown.

Paper copies of the survey are available at City Hall, the offices of the Rockdale Downtown Association,

134 North Main (Dyess Insurance Agency) or the Municipal Development District offices, 114 East Cameron (US 79).

D yess said the Dow ntow n Master Plan will focus on a number of areas, including potential physical improvements, such as sidewalks, parking and building renovation, ways to market downtown and Rockdale and ways in which businesses can increase their viability.

For further information about the sur vey, contact Jim Carrillo, director of planning at Halff Associates, 512-777-4610 or Dyess at 512-446-6680.

“Another great opportunity to provider feedback for the downtown area will be the MDD’s community visioning meeting, set for 5:30 p.m. May 24 at the Patterson Center,” Dyess said.
