ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  If you're downtown over the next week, you may be approached by an Albany State student asking your opinion about downtown revitalization.

Students were conducting surveys Friday in front of the School Administration Building and Water Gas and Light.

The 21 question survey asks everything from how much leisure time you spend downtown to how safe you feel.

While the surveys target downtown employees, eventually the survey will be put online to get the overall community's response.  

"We're looking to add this same survey onto our website as soon as possible," said Asst. Downtown Manager Monique Broughton. "So citizens if they would like to put their input in and we definitely would love that input because it will take the community's support to make it happen for downtown Albany."

City leaders hope people will take the time to fill out the surveys so they can better gear downtown programs like music festivals and movies in the park toward what people want.
