Take the Porter Square and Lower Massachusetts Ave. Customer Intercept Survey!

News Image

As part of its Customer Intercept Survey Program for Cambridge’s commercial districts, the Community Development Department (CDD) will begin surveying Porter Square and Lower Massachusetts Avenue on Tuesday, September 10, 2019 through Friday, September 20, 2019 (weather permitting). Representatives from the City will be in the area handing out surveys to residents, patrons, and visitors. 

The purpose of the Commercial District Customer Intercept Survey is to provide CDD's Economic Development Division with a better understanding of what Cambridge residents and Porter Square/Lower Mass. Ave. customers want in their commercial district. Having specific information about the different types of consumers in each commercial district will enable CDD to better assist entrepreneurs in finding locations where their businesses can succeed, help current businesses owners understand the local market, and help property owners recruit potential businesses to vacant storefronts. CDD has completed successful surveys in Central and Inman Squares, and the results have informed the planning process for those areas. 

Surveys may also be picked up, filled out, and submitted at: Joie de Vivre (1792 Mass. Ave.), Honeycomb Creamery (1702 Massachusetts Ave.), and Spirer Jewelers (1780 Mass. Ave). We encourage you to take an intercept survey or fill one out at one of the retailers and give us your input on Porter Square and Lower Mass. Ave.!
