The City’s Economic Development Department conducted a survey to better understand the implementation of safety measures and how protocols help increase both the reality and perception of a safe local shopping environment.

With crucial feedback from local business owners, City staff were able to make informed decisions as Columbia businesses continue to reopen.

Economic Development received almost 300 responses from business owners and leaders who took the time to fill out the survey. The thoughts and input are invaluable in helping the City to make better policy decisions regarding reopening the local business community in the most responsible way possible.
