Songs of Summer - Road Closure Survey Results

*Correction, road closure is as follows: Saturday August 19, 2017 morning to late evening.*

Date: Monday March 28, 2017

Dear BIA members,

In the past month a digital and face-to-face survey was conducted in regards to the new TD Songs of Summer event and to help determine whether the members would prefer to have a full day or half day street closure on Saturday August 19, 2017 for the event.

The survey was conducted from March 1, 2017 and was closed on March 8, 2017. The results have been calculated from these survey and are provided below. 

155 members completed the survey over the course of the week in person and online. 

86 or 55.48% of businesses indicated that they would prefer a full day road closure. 

49 or 31.61% of businesses indicated that they would prefer a half day road closure. 

14 or 9.03% of businesses indicated that they would be happy with either decision. 

6 or 3.87% of businesses did not complete the survey properly but, did submit. 

With these results it has been confirmed by the BIA that there will be a full day road closure beginning early morning on Saturday August 19, 2017 and ending late in the evening on Saturday August 19, 2017, from Navy St. to Allan St. and Church St. to Robinson St. 

If your business' employee parking area is accessed from a side street or affected by this closure please contact the BIA so arrangements can be made accordingly. 

We appreciate your time taking the survey and hope to see you participate during this event.
