People who spend time in Midtown Atlanta will soon have a new opportunity to weigh in on urban issues that define the district’s present and future.
On April 15, Midtown Alliance is launching a Community Survey to gather input from Midtown residents, workers and visitors about a range of topics, from transportation and community engagement to public safety and green spaces. The findings will help Midtown Alliance refine its work plan and programs.
“All of our work is geared towards creating an exceptional urban experience in Midtown,” said Midtown Alliance President and CEO Kevin Green. “Since the last time we administered this survey just three short years ago, the core of Midtown has continued to welcome thousands of new residents, workers and visitors. With a lot more changes on the horizon, it’s important for us to clearly understand what people think about the district today and what they want to see in the future.”
How it works
The community survey will be administered online at MidtownATL.com/Survey.
Respondents take different versions of the survey based on their relationship to Midtown as residents, workers, both residents and workers or visitors. Findings will be broken down by these groups to help inform strategies and give voice to community priorities that can be shared with agency partners to advance public improvement projects. What's more, the survey will include some open-ended questions that respondents can use to express their views. All responses are confidential and will not be shared with third parties. Estimated completion time is 8 minutes. Respondents completing the survey will be entered for the chance to win a limited edition Midtown ATL branded t-shirt.
Much has changed since the last community survey
Midtown market conditions have evolved considerably since the last community survey in 2016. Last year alone, 14 development projects were delivered in the district, and 31 other major projects are currently proposed or under construction. Since the last study was published, 11,000 new jobs have been announced in the district, and we estimate that roughly 50 new residents move into Midtown each week.
