Lowe's Community Survey


Text Block:
The following survey, totaling 10 questions, is being conducted by the Clarion News Blog to measure public opinion about the proposed construction of a Lowe's Home Improvement Center in the Town of Geneseo and related issues. All answers are anonymous and the publishers of clarioncall.com are not able to see individual responses. The survey can only be taken once from any one computer and we ask that you only take the survey one time. The results will be published on the Clarion Call News Blog after more than 25 responses are received. When published, the results will not represent a scientific sample and thus may not reflect actual public opinion. Thanks for participating!
