Survey for Long Beach Business Owners --
Tell the City what you think!
The Council of Business Associations (COBA) is asking for your participation in the new Customer Service Survey that will finally allow small business owners to have a voice about their experience with multiple departments of city hall.
COBA has developed and released an online customer service survey to the Long Beach business community as a way to gather feedback that describes the experience of the city's licensing, permitting, and inspection processes.
COBA is made up of representatives of business improvement districts and business alliances that include: Bixby Knolls, Downtown, 4th Street, Belmont Shore, East Anaheim, Naples, Cambodia Town, East Spring Street, Andy Street, and Broadway corridor. COBA has met monthly for three years discussing common issues and concerns pertaining to businesses in Long Beach. The most common issue was the perceived difficulty of going through the "process" to open, expand, or modify a business in Long Beach.

The goal of the survey is to provide enough specific feedback, both good and bad, that can be analyzed and presented to city management with solutions to implement and help change any negative perception of Long Beach as a place to do business and create a real "business friendly" environment.
Survey questions were developed by COBA and reviewed in a partnership with the City of Long Beach Department of Development Services for clarity of language in order for city staff to be able to pin point where complaints or feedback should be directed and addressed. An independent consultant was hired to help polish the survey for formatting and data analysis.
