Business StudyArlington Business Survey | August 2016


Arlington conducted its first ever business survey that targeted Arlington’s business leaders and workers. The purpose of the study was to gather statically valid, reliable quantitative data to help us understand how local business and workers currently perceive Arlington as a business location. In addition, we wanted to identify any local misperceptions that must be overcome and opportunities that should be leveraged to build Arlington’s pro-business reputation. The study is currently being reviewed and analyzed by staff and it is anticipated that the County Board will be briefed before the end of the year. These are verbatim responses to some of the open ended questions in the business survey.
