The Business Walk yesterday went very well with a good turnout from the community. I was assigned to Area # 3 (see map below) and there were 6 teams with at least one community member and two Community Development members from the County. My team contact a total of 7 businesses ( Granite’s, Papa Murphy’s and Fatso’s were closed) We had some very positive feedback from all the businesses in our area.
The County people with me were very impressed by the length of time they had been at their locations and that nearly every business expressed their satisfaction with the community and doing business in the community. None except possibly the Barber Shop were interested in relocating and he would be interested in relocating the to coming project behind Granites if it becomes available.
The major complaints were homelessness, road repairs, general clean up of the streets and sidewalks, lack of police response and patrols, and in one case the parking available for the Barber Shop and how hard it was to have clients back out onto M St. He suggested “angle” parking along M St. would make it safer to back out. That was also the main reason he would relocate but he didn’t want to leave the community.
For reference the Arch is located at the center of the L shape in Area #3
