Downtown Neighbors, we need your help!
Downtown Grand Rapids Inc and the City of Grand Rapids deployed “social zones” in June 2020 to provide local businesses more room to expand their operations outdoors on public property and help manage reduced occupancy and physical distancing guidelines during the pandemic. The zones also aim to provide residents in Downtown and Downtown-adjacent neighborhoods more room to spread out, patronize their favorite businesses and more safely enjoy leisure activities during difficult times.

These social zone interventions took shape generally as expanded outdoor seating, dining, fitness and other common areas along Monroe Center, Bridge and Ionia Streets and the Monroe North neighborhood. Targeted social zone interventions also were deployed along Pearl Street, Grandville, Sheldon and Ottawa Avenues, as well as numerous expanded sidewalk patios across Downtown.
The purpose of this survey is to invite feedback from Downtown residents, better understand how the zones are performing and identify opportunities for improvement as we continue to organize economic and social stabilization and recovery efforts in Downtown Grand Rapids.

This survey is 9 quick questions and should take less than 5 minutes. Thank you for taking the time to fill it out.
