From DC Office of Planning:

“The Office of Planning (OP) invites you to complete a short survey, designed to assess the experience of patrons of outdoor dining and retail establishments in Washington, DC during the COVID-19 public health emergency.

Established in June 2020 through a joint District Department of Transportation, Office of Planning, and Department of Health effort, the outdoor dining and retail pickup program initially aimed to uplift small businesses following the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak and the resulting public health emergency status. Now, OP is evaluating how the effort impacted District residents and businesses to help determine the future of the program once the public health emergency ends. The information you provide in the survey will inform that assessment.

The survey will be available until February 14, 2021.
