Bulletin Staff Report

When it comes opinions, Brownwood certainly has its share. Organizers of the Feels Like Home 2017 plan hope that area residents will share their opinions about the Brownwood community, and have created an online survey to help them do that.

The survey, which is available on several Web sites through Monday, will be used to help the group form a working plan that will be introduced to the community later this spring.

Organizers say that the plan will help shape a better city by giving community leaders some idea of the issues that citizens here find important.

Launched last fall, Feels Like Home 2017 was originally organized as a committee of the Brownwood Area Chamber of Commerce as a way to determine how best to promote Brownwood to tourists, new businesses and families looking to relocate from outside the community.

The survey is available online at the chamber’s Web site at

www.brownwoodchamber.org, on the city’s Web site, www.ci.brownwood.tx.us and also at www.brownwoodtx.com. Respondents are encouraged to complete the survey online, but hard copies will be available at the chamber office, city hall and the Brownwood Public Library.

“Because citizen input is important to Brownwood’s future, this survey is co-sponsored by the Brownwood Area Chamber of Commerce, the LCRA, the Brownwood Bulletin and the City of Brownwood,” Laura Terhune, executive director of the Brownwood Area Chamber of Commerce, said.

Terhune said that more than 188 people had completed the survey as of Wednesday morning.
