Welcome to City Swipe, the fastest way for you to tell us what you like and don't like about your Downtown!

Santa Monica
Here's How It Works

Each slide will show an image and a question pertaining to a different element of Downtown. There are two different types of questions:

1. Yes or No Questions
(Swipe RIGHT for YES or LEFT for NO)

2. Which Do you Prefer?


If you have more to say about a certain question, please click the chat button on that question's slide and leave us your comments. Then swipe to the next slide.

Your feedback will be incorporated into Downtown Santa Monica's recommendations for the City of Santa Monica's Downtown Community Plan. This plan will help guide the future of Downtown for the next 15 years. So please take a moment to share your thought with us, and have some fun!
