Chuck, you write “… that Nonantum is gaining traction with a lot of great stores, cafes and restaurants. I was in Olivia’s Bistro for the launch and the rebuild is beautiful. It adds a very nice cocktail bar to the neighborhood. ”
Something tells me this was not high on the list of needs of the long-time residents of this neighborhood. Just saying. But then, some folks seem to know what my neighborhood also needs so that it can start ‘gaining traction’ as you say.
Is a community only supposed to welcome and encourage businesses that serve the “needs of long-time residents” of that neighborhood? Please share your thoughts.
