1. Survey Purpose

Dear San Carlos Avenue Business Person,

This survey is part of the doctoral dissertation research I am conducting on the effect of street design on the use of "main streets". I would much appreciate your assistance by filling out the short questionnaire regarding your own business and your perspectives on San Carlos Avenue in downtown San Carlos. The results will increase understanding of the use and effectiveness of your street and other "main streets".

Please feel free to contact me at sustainablestreets@gmail.com with any questions. Thanks in advance!

Best regards,

Joe Kott
