2021 Downtown Portland Business Survey

At the time of this survey (Nov. 15 – Dec. 15, 2021), many businesses in Downtown Portland were still reeling from the almost two years of economic uncertainty. Business owners and managers detail the combined impacts of the COVID-19 crisis, the challenges presented by the rising population of people experiencing homelessness, and a growing concern with personal safety for themselves and for their employees.

This survey reflects the experiences of business owners and managers operating within the I-405/I-5 loop, between Oct. 1, 2020 and Oct. 1, 2021.
