The City District Main Street (Website) has just released an online survey to help gauge perceptions Orlandoans may have with the downtown core in response to recent policies and ordinances coming out of Orlando City Hall.
As we recently shared HERE, the mayor’s office is looking to put two new ordinances into place that will drastically change how nightclub and bar operators work downtown through a proposed moratorium on new clubs and a limit to how late they could stay open if they don’t provide required safety protocols put forth by the city.
“Safety is on the top of minds from every business, resident and visitor I talk to within our downtown Orlando footprint. Under the Main Street America program, the need for local data and engagement is the driving factor in creating a deliberate path to revitalization and strengthening our commercial district’s economy. It’s critical that we allow for our growing and diverse community to have a say in finding an equitable solution and this survey is the quickest way to gather that sentiment.”– NIKKI AVILES, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, CITY DISTRICT MAIN STREET
The 18-question survey takes roughly five minutes to complete and asks for input from Orlando residents and business owners on how best to improve safety downtown, whether you’ve ever been a victim of violent crime there, and what you feel about the current level of police presence in the Downtown Entertainment Area.
The survey is available HERE (or via their Instagram bio link) through Wednesday, February 28, after which the data will be presented to the City of Orlando and the mayor’s office ahead of the scheduled March 20 reading of the proposed After Midnight Alcohol Sales Permit ordinance.
