Arts District in downtown L.A. wants your input!

The Arts District in downtown Los Angeles has been coming around in recent years with a steady uptick of new businesses and residences. The Eastside Extension of the Gold Line has also helped plug the Arts District into Metro’s growing rail network.

In that spirit, here’s a message from the the Arts District Business Improvement District:

Who lives, works and visits the Downtown LA Arts District?  The Arts District Business Improvement District (BID) is going to find out! And after we do, we will use this information to market the district and attract more businesses and amenities to join the growing Arts District community.

Take the survey today and be a part of this first-ever demographic survey of the Arts District. The link is www.artsdistrictla.com and click on “Survey.”

The  marketing research will communicate vital economic initiatives that will inform the BID’s work in 2012 and beyond. These will include but not be limited to strategies and positioning, marketing locally and outside the District, and stakeholder expectations for the District and for the BID.  Demographics studies lead to positive media coverage of the population gains and spending habits of Downtown residents. These studies are also pivotal in assisting to persuade greater investment in the area.
