City of Decatur Economic Development Officer Patrick Hoban has started a retail feedback tour seeking input from residents about what kinds of retail or restaurant development they would like to see. As of March 26, 2014, Hoban had compiled a list that includes the most suggested businesses based on feedback so far to try and recruit to Decatur. He is tallying the feedback he receives and adding it to a city prospect database to better meet the demands of the community. Those with ideas can contact Hoban at or call (217) 424-2778.
