[Source: Yuri Arbitise, Jane’s Walk Phoenix Coordinator] — The May 2, 2009 Jane’s Walk Phoenix will focus on the northern part of downtown Phoenix between 7th Ave. and 7th St, and Van Buren and Interstate 10 (i.e., Roosevelt neighborhood, Evans Churchill neighborhood, and ASU Downtown Phoenix Campus).
While this area in mind, walk organizers would appreciate your responses to as many of the questions below as you like (five would be great)! Your answers will help in selecting a specific walk route and identifying features and concepts to point out during the course of the walk. For this survey, “neighborhood” refers to the northern part of downtown as explained above.
In addition, with your permission, organizers would like to profile some respondent’s answers in the Jane’s Walk Phoenix Blog. However, if you would rather your answers to be anonymous or confidential, that’s no problem!). Just cut and paste your responses into an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
