Downtown Council introduces Downtown residential survey
Calling all Downtown residents. We want to hear from you! The Downtown Council, working in tandem with Downtown and River Market Community Improvement Districts, has launched a survey of greater Downtown residents.
The new year brings a need for an updated perspective from the residential base of Downtown KC. We want to better understand the needs, habits and desires of you, the residents. If you can spare a few minutes, we’d love to learn a little more about your thoughts on Downtown. Your responses will help us plan for the future.
Click here to access the survey. It should only take about 10 minutes to complete. If you complete the survey by January 22nd, you will be eligible to win a $100 gift card to Rally House.
Ready? Set? The survey awaits you. Feel free to share your questions or comments with Jared Campbell, firstname.lastname@example.org.
