Working with developers prior to zoning and permitting processes and cultivating relationships between individuals rather than entities
Collaborating with local business associations to foster a common agenda among Town officials, store owners, commercial landlords, and neighborhood residents
Conducting research and outreach to suggest policy changes to improve our commercial areas
Improving the functional and aesthetic qualities of public space in our commercial areas
Support neighborhood groups and non-profits in programming of our commercial areas
Assisting individual businesses with business plans, identifying financial support and outreach / networking opportunities
