Members Survey Results Released!

In August the Parkdale Village Business Improvement Area (BIA) began it’s first step towards Strategic Planning by surveying property and/or commercial business’/ community organization’s who fell within the BIA boundary (as defined by the City of Toronto).

Our team was overwhelmed with the amount of wonderful feedback and the quantity of completed survey results exceeded our expectations – thank you!!!

The feedback will be used toward defining our priorities and identifying where we can add the most value on behalf of members. The BIA currently funds, manages and helps facilitate dozens of Streetscape, Marketing, Events & Advocacy initiatives within Parkdale Village along Queen Street West and can now ensure that we are focusing on initiatives that represent members interests.

The above snapshot will be circulated to members in the coming month, please feel free to reach out to our office with any further inquiries and thank you for helping guide our community into a new chapter!
