Center City District Customer Satisfaction Survey
For 26 years, the Center City District has been making downtown Philadelphia clean, safe and attractive with lighting, signs and landscaping. Ten years ago we began renovating and programming Center City parks, including Dilworth Park and Sister Cities Park. We produce Restaurant Week and publish key market research on significant issues that impact Center City. How are we doing? What can we do better or differently?
Please take five minutes to complete our brief on-line survey at CCDSurvey.com. You'll be automatically entered to win $250 in restaurant gift certificates. Five lucky winners will be randomly selected.
The survey closes at midnight on October 31, so please give us your opinion and suggestions today!
