What is Your Ideal Flatbush Avenue?

Comments Off on What is Your Ideal Flatbush Avenue?

The Flatbush Avenue Business Improvement District (BID) requests your participation in taking the Flatbush Consumer Survey.

The survey only takes 5-10 minutes, but your responses will have long-lasting impacts as they will be the cornerstone of a marketing plan designed to:

  1. Help existing business owners in the BID meet the needs of their local community better.
  2. Attract new businesses, programming, and events to the BID as deemed desirable by the community.

We believe that when individuals have a stake in making positive change, the change is likely to be more long lasting, so if you would like your voice factored into the creation of the marketing plan please click here to begin the survey.

Don’t forget to include your e-mail address on the survey if you’d like to be entered in the sweepstakes drawing for (1) $100 American Express gift card and to receive information on the BID’s upcoming events, new businesses, and downtown deals!

The boundaries of the BID are illustrated in the map below. Throughout the survey, we use the term “Flatbush Avenue” as a definition of these boundaries.
