Town of Conway: Resident, Visitor & Business Survey

The Conway Planning Board, with assistance from the Franklin Regional Council of Governments, has created a survey of residents, visitors, and owners and workers of businesses in Conway to find out where people shop, what businesses they think would be successful in Conway, and what types of businesses are already in Conway. This will help local officials develop strategies to increase the amount of economic activity happening in Conway while also preserving the community’s rural character. Encouraging greater business activity can translate into more local job opportunities, closer access to shopping and services, and an expanded tax base to support important municipal functions.

More business could mean: a more dynamic Town Center with more restaurants, stores, work spaces, or community events for residents and visitors; a more robust network of home-based businesses; more farms and light manufacturers; or a combination of these activities. This survey is just one step in understanding the direction the community would like to go.

Complete the survey online at by Wednesday, October 18, 2017.  Hard copies of the survey are available at the Library, Town Hall, and Town Offices during regular business hours. Hard copies may be placed in the collection envelope found at each location or mailed to the Town Administrator at P.O. Box 240, Conway, MA 01341.

Please note that all individual responses are confidential. We appreciate your input. Thank you!

Important Info About West Nile Virus

Due to new awareness from new mosquito testing in Deerfield (MAPHCO project), risk level for West Nile Virus has been raised to moderate in Deerfield, Conway, and Shelburne.   Moderate risk level does not indicate a need to restrict activities beyond normal recommendation.

Avoid mosquitoes where possible and practice good mosquito avoidance habits:

  • When you are outdoors, wear long pants, a long-sleeved shirt and socks. This may be difficult to do when the weather is hot, but it will help keep mosquitoes away from your skin.
  • Use a repellent with DEET or oil of lemon eucalyptus according to the instructions on the product label.
  • Keep mosquitoes out of your house by repairing any holes in your screens and making sure they are tightly attached to all your doors and windows.
  • Remove areas of standing water around your home.  Mosquitoes can begin to multiply in any puddle or standing water that lasts for more than four days!

Check your risk levels throughout the season by going to the website Thirty-second instructional videos are available at Please don’t hesitate to contact town nurse Lisa White BS, RN. Tel: 413.665.1400 extension 114.
