Downtown St. Charles - Source of Social, Cultural and Economic Vibrancy

In the 2011 Priorities Survey, the city emphasized the importance of the downtown by asking residents to provide responses to several survey questions. The results demonstrated that St. Charles residents truly enjoy the downtown, feel positive about the current environment, and are bullish about the future.

The survey results show that 70% of respondents believe the downtown has improved during the time that they have lived in St. Charles. This represents an increase of 14% from the 2007 survey. From: Inside St. Charles - the City Administrator's weblog
