  3. It's important that Bridgeville's central business district is vibrant, with opportunities for food, entertainment and shopping - 4.27
  4. I would like to see Bridgeville's historic homes and buildings preserved - 4.23

When I think of Bridgeville, I think of (choose two) responses . . .

A "split" community and an "incomplete" community were the top responses.
It’s very sad, to me, that I had to select “A split community,” but it is what it is. Original Bridgeville residents dislike Heritage Shores and nothing will change their mind. I find it to be an “incomplete community” because we need to go elsewhere to shop for something other than groceries and prescriptions. The restaurant choices, although good, are very limited.

A word cloud from the open responses about Bridgeville:

What you said:

80% of those who responded would prefer to see Bridgeville fill in vacant lots and fix up historic properties rather than new single-family homes in new subdivisions.

. . . and 80% would prefer to see unique eating choices such as brewpubs and bistros rather than familiar chain and fast-food restaurants.

And you said a lot more!

Thanks for taking the survey!
