The Institute for Policy and Economic Development (IPED) at the University of Texas at El Paso was contracted by the El Paso Downtown Management District (DMD) and the City Development Department (CDD) of the City of El Paso, Texas to collect data and conduct survey research on issues related to downtown El Paso. Accordingly, this report provides a snapshot of the characteristics and opinions of business owners/managers within the Downtown Management District area. The survey and its findings are intended to guide the DMD and the CDD in their mission to improve public property, public facilities and promote economic development to enhance the quality of life of the overall community, particularly that of the downtown area.
