City Wants Your Input in Marketing Campaign

The City of Temple Terrace is asking residents to fill out a survey as it begins to brand the area.

Update: The City of Temple Terrace has made this survey available online via Survey Monkey. Submissions will continue to be accepted as they come in.

What images come to mind when you think of Temple Terrace?

That’s what the city wants to know. As it begins its to brand the city and attract new residents and businesses, Temple Terrace is asking current residents and business owners to fill out a survey identifying special city attributes.

“We need your ideas,” Mike Dunn, the city’s public information officer, told members of the during a luncheon last week. “They’ll help shape the way we identify the city as we head into the future.”

The Temple Terrace City Council approved a new marketing strategy at its Oct. 18 meeting. The city is working with Martin Communications and Lancaster Design, both based in Temple Terrace, to create a Temple Terrace brand, logo, tagline and business image. It will also contract with CivicPlus, a St. Louis-based company, to create an interactive website, and Full Throttle Intermedia in Tampa to create a commercial-quality video that showcases and promotes the city and its economic environment.

The survey consists of five questions, but Dunn said participants don’t have to fill out every line. They can answer a couple of the questions or simply email their ideas to Dunn at mdunn@templeterrace.com.

“This way, the public has a chance to weigh in and give some ideas,” Dunn said. “… I think that will lead to a better product.”

Patch has made a printable version of the survey available with this story. You can fill it out and mail it to:

Michael Dunn
11250 N. 56th St.
Temple Terrace, FL 33617

I really am glad the city is doing this survey. My only problem is that you are making it such a pain to download, then email or snailmail results back. Why not do a free surveymonkey? That way you just give us a link and you get results back in a database. Would save you tons of time compiling results. Just use the free version, it works great.

Great point Jamie, the survey download is cumbersome, suveymonkey would be better,

Just out of curiosity, why are we using a St. Louis based company instead of a Tampa bay area company to promote our city? And I agree with Jamie that survey monkey would be a much better choice.

Check with the city, CivicPlus was a package deal that TT is going into with other local communities, Lancaster Design and Martin Communications are local. Please send this survey to folks you know in TT!
