Bluefield officials are asking citizens to weigh in on the city's planning for community and economic growth.

The city Board of Directors is conducting an online survey to gather citizens' input. Survey questions include what types of businesses the city should attract and what opportunities are seen for the city.

Community and economic development coordinator Jim Spencer tells the Bluefield Daily Telegraph that citizen input is vital to the planning process.

Spencer says any citizen who doesn't have Internet access can contact him at City Hall. Arrangements will be made to mail or deliver the survey to the citizen.

He says the board would like to have the surveys completed by early September.
