City of West Allis Focus Groups

The City of West Allis is embarking on a "strategic rebranding" process.

They are organizing 4 – 5 focus groups with 5 – 7 members in each group to help learn more about perceptions and ideas for a vision for the City.

The focus groups need to be diverse and can include anyone aged 18 or over. Participants can be residents, parents, business owners, etc.

Participants will be asked to attend a 2-hour focus group meeting that will be held during the month of February with consultants from their rebranding company, Savage Solutions.

Participants can have positive or negative opinions about the City -- they just need to be willing to share their thoughts.

If you or someone you know would like to join a focus group, contact Jenny Kosek, Communications Specialist for the City of West Allis
