TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) -- Have you ever been out looking for something to do or trying to find a place to eat and thought "Why doesn't Tallahassee have ..."

Well now is your chance to tell city and county officials what development you are hoping to see in the area.

The Tallahassee/Leon County Office of Economic Vitality (OEV) is seeking citizen input as part of the County's and City's ongoing economic development strategic planning process.

"Whether growing a business here or relocating from somewhere else in the nation, our OEV team is here to help," said Ben Pingree, Director of PLACE. "Through our ongoing listening and strategic planning sessions and the accessibility of the online survey, we are asking local business owners and residents how we can take our community to the next level. We're not asking about what successes we see today, but rather what the big wins of tomorrow will look like."

For more information about listening and strategic planning sessions, visit the OEV's website at

For citizens unable to weigh in at a listening and strategic planning session, OEV has a community survey available online. Visit by July 31 to have your opinions included in the strategic plan.
