Paper copies can be completed at Resource Bank, Village Hall, Flewellin Memorial Library, Pokanoka’s Café, Lakeside Bait & Tackle, Wisted’s Country Market, Shabbona Café and in Shabbona Lake State Park. All responses will be confidential and the compiled results will be shared this fall.

The survey is a component of an economic development planning grant that was provided by the DeKalb County Community Foundation.


Note:  There are separate surveys for Shabbona residents/businesses and anyone else not from Shabbona.
