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), Strategic Communication Consulting Group (SCCG), and the City of El Paso Economic Development Department (EPED) to conduct a survey on issues related to downtown El Paso. Accordingly, this report provides a snapshot of the attitudes and perceptions of business owners and employees within the Downtown Management District, as well as El Paso County households, regarding several issues associated with downtown El Paso. The survey and its findings are intended to guide the DMD and the City in their mission to improve public property, public facilities, promote economic development, and provide outstanding customer service to enhance the community overall, and the downtown area in particular.
