How as a community can we “welcome” new residents (e.g. college students, immigrants, migrant workers, etc…) to the Stevens County area?

Services in the Area

What do you feel are some services (e.g. stores-24/7, restaurants, entertainment,  truck stop, etc…) that you would “like” in this area?

The “newest” truck stop (w/ a fast-food restaurant-Subway & a cafe) in Alexandria on the “busy” intersection (exit ramp) of I-94 and State Highway 27.

Morris used to have a truck stop according to folks I’ve talked to that have lived in this community for a longer time than I have.   Where is it now? What happened? You think we could get one again? Would it help with the congested traffic on Main Street? Will it hurt businesses in this particular route? What if there was one built on the corner of Highway 59 and 28 (old Westmor headquarters)?

Have you ever wanted to start your own business (e.g. scrapbooking, home-based, day-care,  restaurant, store, etc…)?

If you were provided the means (e.g. financial, tools, classes,  etc..) to start one, what would it be?

If the community offered a “start your own business” seminar, would you be interested?
