The Downtown Management District conducted a survey recently, and guess what? People are optimistic about our central business district.
The streets of Downtown are quiet after six months of coronavirus-related closures and restrictions, but business owners remain hopeful and optimistic about the future, according to a new survey that will be released later this week.
The Downtown Management District provided El Paso Inc. with an early copy of its sixth annual survey of Downtown businesses owners, property owners, employees, residents and visitors.
About 94% of survey respondents agreed that Downtown El Paso is improving, up slightly from last year.
Entrepreneurs are notoriously optimistic. They have to be.
But man. The obstacles to a creating a vibrant downtown are mounting.
A falling peso. Work from home. Restrictions on bars and restaurants and entertainment.
But hey. It’s all good.
