Chattanooga Stand is close to reaching its goal of 25,000 surveys completed by Chattanooga area residents. Do you live in the Chattanooga metro area (including Cleveland and northwest Georgia)? Have you taken the Stand survey? Well, you should, because if you don’t I’m not listening to any whining about not liking where the city is headed.

What is Stand? Glad you asked. It’s a campaign to determine what Chattanoogans want from the city. It’s a way to make your voice heard about the direction the city is going. It’s a way to develop a clear vision for the future. Chattanooga has come a long way from the dirtiest city in America but there’s still a long way to go to make it the shining beacon of progressive city planning that I’d like to see. And no, it isn’t multiple choice so put your thinking caps on.

EDIT: Survey goal accomplished!

This is what Stand has to say about their goals:
25 years ago, Chattanooga reached a crossroads. Facing economic, environmental and social challenges, a handful of city leaders rallied a few thousand citizens to identify problems and possibilities. Chattanooga Venture’s Vision 2000 process established a legacy of visioning in our community and played a significant role in the remarkable turnaround of Chattanooga’s downtown in the following years.

The community stands at another crossroads. In July 2008, Volkswagen announced Chattanooga as its choice for a North American manufacturing hub. This celebrated news raises an important question. Chattanoogans are asking, what’s next for us?

Downtown, in every neighborhood, across counties, and throughout the region: Stand invites you to help us build on the visioning process that began our community’s transformation 25 years ago.
