Survey Assists East Grand Forks Economic Development Authority with Moving Marketing Plan Forward

            (May 15, 2018)  The City of East Grand Forks Economic Development Authority (EGF EDA) thanks the residents who recently participated in a community survey.  The EGF EDA is ramping up its efforts to market East Grand Forks to new businesses and residents, and the survey results are helping to guide the process. 

            “We repeatedly heard that people love living in community that feels small, but has all the amenities of a larger town.  The survey results are giving us valuable insight into what East Grand Forks residents think we should be promoting, as well as the things that we can improve upon,” says Paul Gorte, EGF EDA Director. 

            Survey respondents listed high quality schools, recreation opportunities on the Greenway, and the food and entertainment options in the vibrant downtown area as the best parts of living in East Grand Forks.  Respondents also said East Grand Forks needs more single family homes in the $150,000 to $250,000 price range.   

            In addition, local business leaders were interviewed to get their feedback about what is working in East Grand Forks and what may need some work.  “Thank you to everyone who shared their opinions.  We’re taking all of it into consideration as we move forward with branding and promoting East Grand Forks,” says Gorte. 

The EGF EDA recently set up a Facebook page where key survey results will be posted and new branding will be unveiled. The EGF EDA page can be found on Facebook by searching East Grand Forks Economic Development Authority or @EGFEDA.
