What do you think of downtown Des Moines? Take this survey

Dear Readers:

DART is certainly proud of its own progress being made in downtown Des Moines: Construction on DART Central Station is in full swing and it is expected to open on time in late 2012.

But what do you think of downtown Des Moines as a whole? Is it clean? Safe? What do you do here? Do you live here, work here, play here, or all of the above?

That’s what Operation Downtown wants to know. Take a minute to complete the following survey: www.surveymonkey.com/s/OD2011Survey.

No Internet? Call it in between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at 515-286-4943.  The survey is open throughout December 2011.

Fill out the survey for civic duty. The final product — basically, a report card on downtown — will be used to identify ways of making downtown even better.

Or do it for selfish reasons. Participants have a chance to win an iPad2. Good luck!
