Delridge Business District Survey seeks local business information

The Delridge Neighborhood Economic Development Steering Committee has announced the Delridge Business Survey and Outreach Project.

The goal of this project is to gather needed information to support community led business development in the area. They are asking Delridge area businesses to complete a survey with questions about local business. See a letter explaining the purpose to businesses at the link.

The surveying will be taking place during the months of June and July 2017 in person, online and over the phone by community ambassadors. The project report with action plan that summarizes the findings and the priorities will be shared in August 2017.

The project will target businesses in and around the Delridge corridor in an effort to catalog existing business, gather information about business resource and development needs, business owners concerns and feelings about the area. Businesses from Sylvan Way to Spokane Street will be included in this survey.

While there are many businesses along the Delridge corridor that provide goods and services, they have not been formally organized together or under a shared Delridge economic development vision. Recently, residents in Delridge have expressed their desire to work collectively with small business to define and promote a shared vision for growth and prosperity.

The Delridge Business Survey and Outreach Project is managed by a Steering Committee formed of Delridge residents, businesses and stakeholders including: The Delridge Neighborhoods Development Association, The West Seattle Chamber of Commerce and the City of Seattle Department of Neighborhoods.

Interested parties can learn more about the project by visiting the DNDA website at www.DNDA.org and the West Seattle Chamber of Commerce website at www.wschamber.com.
