A iPad mini and five $20 gift cards are up for grabs in a draw if you complete the district survey on ‘shopping habits, leisure activities, and perceptions in and around downtown Squamish.’
The new consumer study survey aims to determine what business services Squamish residents and visitors want to see in downtown Squamish, said Mayor Rob Kirkham.
“We hope to receive useful data that will help inform decisions around our downtown transformation initiative, as well as provide insights to the business community on what opportunities exist downtown.”
The survey has been developed in partnership with a university student-run volunteer organization, White Forest Consulting.
Student volunteers will be administering the survey at the upcoming farmers’ market. The survey is also available online.
The survey will be open online August 3 to September 7, 2013.
Student volunteers will be at the farmers’ market to conduct the survey in person August 3, 10, 17, 24, 31, and September 7.
Posters and postcards will be placed throughout downtown Squamish stores, and various tourist attractions with a link and QR code for the survey.
