Borderstan is conducting our first annual reader survey since our relaunch last year.
We’ve designed a survey that should take only 10 minutes to fill out, but could help Borderstan better serve our community for years to come.
We would greatly appreciate your time in filling it out. Take the survey here or use the embedded survey box below.
We want to thank everyone who took the first Borderstan reader survey last week. We will be sifting through the information in the coming days and weeks, and it is already apparent that it will be extremely helpful. — Luis, Matty, Mary, Alejandra, Cecile, Tom, Danny, Michelle L., Mike, Michelle B., Berrak and Lupe

The Borderstan survey taker who won the $250 in groceries from Safeway is Steve Oatmeyer, a resident of Logan Circle. He is a freelance art director who moved to DC in 2002 from Buffalo, New York.
“I moved here to escape the winters in Buffalo. I lived on Capitol Hill before moving to Logan six years ago,” Oatmeyer said.
Oatmeyer loves the walkability of his south Logan location, which gives him easy access to downtown as well as Logan, Shaw and U St.: “I can walk out my front door and end up in a number of different neighborhoods in minutes.”
One of the neighborhood locations he sometimes frequents is the Shaw Dog Park on 11th St. NW. In fact, we recognized Oatmeyer through his dog, Hawkeye. If you’re a dog owner, you’ll understand.
It is important to us that we know and understand our readers after two-plus years of covering the Dupont, Logan and U Street neighborhoods. You can help us do that by taking the Borderstan Reader Survey — 13 fast questions and about 5 minutes of your time.
We’re closing the survey this Sunday, Nov. 21, at 11:59 pm and notifying the winner on Monday morning — just in time for your Thanksgiving food shopping!
Your responses will be confidential. After you complete the survey, you will have the opportunity to win $250 worth of groceries from Safeway.
Thank you for your help. – Matty, Luis and the Borderstan Team of editors and contributors
