Arena Garage Survey

The City is conducting a survey to gather input on the public's views on downtown revitalization, superficially around Stockton's entertainment venues in Downtown Stockton.

The Arena Garage offers a unique opportunity to support the ongoing activities and events at the entertainment venues with the potential to transform the 15,000 SF vacant commercial space into a bustling public market that would accommodate and support local entrepreneurs. For more information, visit the Arena Garage project page and take the survey to provide your input.
