Take the Downtown Outdoor Use Survey!
As businesses adapt to the newest restrictions, downtown's outdoor public spaces (sidewalks and street space) will continue to be utilized for expanded seating and outdoor dining through the winter months, to accommodate social distancing and health and safety guidelines. As the City of Santa Cruz continues to make important decisions about how to best support a revitalized Downtown, we want to provide them input from you, our Downtown business owners! Take the Downtown Outdoor Use Survey!
Take the Downtown Community Survey!
Even in the worst of times, gratitude can make us feel better - give it a try! Take the Downtown Community Survey! Share some gratitude this Thanksgiving and tell us what you love about your life in downtown Santa Cruz.

We'll also ask about your personal interests and who you like to spend time with downtown. In 2021, the Downtown Association is launching more virtual peer circles, like our new Downtown Restaurateur Circle, and we want there to be one for YOU!
