Earlier this month we mentioned the combined effort of the Downtown Neighborhood Association (DNA), Downtown BID, The Downtowner, Penn Quarter Neighborhood Association and BB & T Bank to get a good snapshot of downtowners. We want to remind everyone that the survey period expires this Friday so if you want to participate, there are a few days left to do so. (Note that this survey is not government sponsored nor is it an official census).
One question we’ve heard thrown around is “Does the survey apply to people who work downtown too?” The answer is “Yes.” If you live in town or in the ‘burbs, you might still work for outfits such as the Archives, Venable, Arnold and Porter, DOJ, GAO, The Smithsonian, AARP, IBEW, DC Central Library, one of the many restaurants or one of the many smaller businesses in the area – the survey does apply to you and your work colleagues. Workers need retail and service options just as much as residents and having quality information about a downtowner helps the “downtown coalition” attract those retail and service providers. (Needless to say, residents are also in the group of interest).
The survey can be found on the Downtown BID website, prizes will be randomly awarded to responders and the survey closes this Friday, November 30 at midnight.
