      Policy B-3.4:

      The Community Redevelopment Agency may participate in programs to increase the market share of the downtown retail core. The program should contain, at least, the following elements:

      • A strategy to attract new businesses to the downtown;
      • An advertising and promotion strategy;
      • A unified merchandising strategy to establish a theme; and,
      • A leasing and operation strategy to coordinate leasing efforts, sales events and store hours.
    5. Program Overview

      The “Let’s Talk Business” promotional program is a source of local business advertisement provided by the Town’s Public Information Office and the CRA. 

      The program would result in two qualified candidates being featured at the first meeting of that quarter. The Candidate within the CRA boundaries will be featured at the CRA Board Meeting and the Candidate within the general Town boundaries will be featured at the Town Council Meeting occurring on the first meeting of the month. 

      For each respective meeting, staff will work with the candidate to create a promotional video that will be exhibited at the meeting and time will be allocated for the candidate to share their story and showcase their business.
