G4 Strategies, in partnership with Discover Pacific Beach, has created this survey, to provide economic insight and greater public awareness of Pacific Beach's business community and its economic value to the San Diego region.

Please answer the following 18 questions, which will take 5-7 minutes of your time. The higher survey response rate we receive, the more accurate and useful the survey data will be for PB business owners and the public at large.

Note: approximations, conservative estimates and "more than" figures are sufficient for responses to this survey. Your responses will be kept private, and only released in aggregate form in a future report.

*** The deadline the complete this survey is Monday, August 20th. ***

Questions or comments can be sent directly to me, Vince Vasquez, at vpvasquez@gmail.com.
