Urbana Business Survey
Business Retention is the foundation of a healthy local economy. The Economic Development Division, in an effort to better understand the dynamics of the business community in Urbana, has completed its 2014 Urbana Business Survey. This assessment derives detailed quantitative and qualitative based information from the Urbana Business Community across many business districts. Results were utilized to realize trends related to economic stability, business ownership, operations, employment, job creation, and satisfaction with organizations and services offered in the area.
The 2014 Urbana Business Survey builds upon previous surveys conducted in 2002 and 2010, and represents valuable data trends within the community, allowing the Economic Development Division to evaluate the continuing business climate.
