So that people could...
Open businesses that create income opportunities to small business owners while allowing local residents access to new businesses, ultimately helping to revitalize Church Avenue. This is a heavily residential area that is high on people, low on useful, attainable and desirable amenities. A new restaurant, children's store, book store, coffee shop, arts/creative space, furniture store--for small business owners where the barrier to entry into the marketplace is start-up capital fit-out costs, this could be a game changer. And for local residents, this would result in a cleaner, cared for and ultimately safer Church Ave, proximate to several neighborhoods and a major thoroughfare for those leaving the Ft. Hamilton subway station.
