Letter to the Editor: Downtown Waterfront Alliance wants to know what you think
The Gig Harbor Downtown Waterfront Alliance is the voice and ears for the merchants and restaurants for our downtown waterfront. We ask that you take a very quick survey in order for us to determine your shopping and dining preferences as residents and visitors. It will help us shape the future of our downtown.

Why it’s important
Summer is in full swing, and with it comes the delightful influx of visitors to Gig Harbor’s charming downtown waterfront. This vibrant community has always been a destination of choice for those seeking scenic beauty, local shops, delectable cuisine, and unforgettable experiences. To ensure that we continue to enhance the Gig Harbor experience for both residents and tourists alike, the Gig Harbor Downtown Waterfront Alliance is conducting its annual Summer Visitor Survey through Labor Day Weekend. Here’s why this survey is vital and why your participation matters.
Understanding visitor needs
By participating in the survey, you’re helping us gain valuable insights into the preferences and needs of our visitors. Whether it’s finding the right mix of shops, improving pedestrian accessibility, enhancing waterfront activities, or supporting local businesses, your feedback guides our efforts to make Gig Harbor a better place for everyone.
Shaping the future
The data collected from the survey informs the Alliance’s strategic planning. Your input helps us identify trends, assess the effectiveness of past initiatives, and plan for future development. With your help, we can ensure that Gig Harbor remains a vibrant, sustainable, and inclusive community that preserves its unique character.
Foster community engagement
Participation in the survey fosters a sense of community involvement. It’s a way for you to have a direct impact on the development and growth of Gig Harbor. When we all come together to share our thoughts and ideas, we strengthen the bonds that make Gig Harbor a special place for residents and visitors alike.
A chance to win
As a small token of appreciation for your valuable input, after completing the survey you can opt-in to win a $250 Visa gift card (that we hope you’ll spend on your next trip to downtown Gig Harbor). It’s a win-win situation where you get the opportunity to voice your opinions and potentially receive something in return.
