STATE COLLEGE, Pa (WTAJ) — Downtown State College is looking for community feedback and it could land you a $100 gift card.

The Downtown State College Improvement District (DSCID) is conducting a community feedback survey to help better serve the downtown community. Those who participate will be automatically entered to win a $100 Downtown Gift, which is valid at over 100 downtown businesses.

“As we strive to be a welcoming and inclusive community, your feedback on ways to improve the downtown experience is critical to our mission,” Executive Director, Lee Anne Jeffries emphasized the importance of this data.

To participate, complete the survey and hit submit before the end of January.

While many businesses are closing their doors or leaving the downtown area, DID said things are looking up.

“I think the businesses that are here currently want to stay here. We’re seeing that the business improved over the pre-COVID numbers of 2019,” Jeffries said. “We had a great year in 2022. We’ve got a business that just moved from Bellefonte and kind of graduated to State College. So, we love seeing that happen.”
