DMD’s Fifth Annual Downtown Survey asks for Public Input

The El Paso Downtown Management District (DMD) is once again releasing their annual downtown survey!  Public input is a crucial component in shaping Downtown El Paso and the ongoing efforts of the DMD.

“This being our fifth annual survey, we are really starting to dial in what the public is looking for and not looking for, in addition to always paying attention to new trends in public opinion. We strongly value the opinions of the public and take their voices into consideration when maintaining or establishing downtown programs and services,” said DMD Executive Director Joe Gudenrath.

During the month of July, the DMD encourages downtown property owners, business owners, employees, visitors and the general public to take its online survey and share their opinion on the current conditions of the downtown, the performance of the DMD and future priorities for the area.

Participants can register themselves into a drawing for a chance to win a $100 gift certificate/card to a downtown business within the DMD boundaries.

The information gained from this brief, unscientific survey will be used by the DMD to better measure its performance and provide guidance on what is important to its stakeholders and the entire El Paso community.  Past survey results have contributed to the creation of the DMD’s Downtown Ambassador Program and additional grant programs including the Downtown Mural Grant Program.

The online survey is available in English and Spanish. For those without online access, hardcopies can be obtained at the DMD offices located at 201 East Main Suite 107, or by calling (915) 400-2294.

The survey can be accessed by visiting and clicking on the slider, the About DMD section or directly at Downtown Survey.
