Hot off the Press

Greetings Fredericksburg Community,

Thank you for taking the time to consider completing this survey about downtown Fredericksburg. The downtown commercial district spans 37 blocks and is home to over 200 businesses, including retail, restaurant, service, and professional establishments. It is an iconic, unique, historical district that is the cornerstone of Fredericksburg.

This survey is being distributed by a group of professionals who are participating in Leadership Fredericksburg, a leadership development program sponsored by the City of Fredericksburg Chamber of Commerce. We are exploring opportunities for strengthening the beloved downtown district as a regional destination for shopping, dining, culture, entertainment, and living. The Fredericksburg Economic Development Authority has approved this survey.

This survey was designed to gain local perspective on the current atmosphere of downtown Fredericksburg as well as the vision for the future. We believe that the input of the greater Fredericksburg community is vital when implementing change for the further development and increased vitality and vibrancy of downtown Fredericksburg. We believe that it is important that progress occur while retaining the historic integrity of the downtown area.

This survey should only take about 10 minutes of your time. Your answers will be completely anonymous. At the end of this survey you will have the option of entering a drawing for a chance to win one of several $50 gift cards to a local downtown business establishment. Survey results will be presented to the Economic Development Authority and published on our blog.

Any questions marked with an asterisk (*) require an answer in order to progress through the survey.

Adoptive parents in Fredericksburg now have a new partner on their journey to a healthy family. In 2016, Children’s Home Society was awarded a $125,000 grant from the Virginia Department of Social Services to extend their Richmond area post-adoptive services to the Fredericksburg area.


Now CHS is looking to find adoptive families in the area who need support before they hit a crisis point. “It doesn’t matter which agency they adopted from, or when that happened,” said Buckheit. “We want to offer a lifetime of support to adoptive families in the Fredericksburg area, especially those who haven’t been aware of our services in the past.”
