i have heard a lot about what "the community" does NOT want in the neighborhood, such as dollar stores, or even a 24 hour Subway.
But what do we actually want?
With all the complaining and seeming pickiness...why would any business owner want to set up shop here?
Who would be willing to put up with a lot of harassment from people who probably won't even support your business?
We have several empty store fronts, including a very nice building....it'll be months before real estate picks up...maybe even longer since we're not Downtown or the North side (and very few of those residents are coming down here for anything).
If we want businesses to come, we as a community need to clearly say what we want.
i'd like to start this conversation by getting some ideas of what YOU want to see in this community.
If we get enough response, i'd like to post it on a poll later. But for now..PLEASE COMMENT. We can get this conversation started...but ONLY with YOUR help!
