Marketplace Workshop

Ann Burke, Vice President of the Economic Development Council of Western MA and Director of the HomeField Advantage Program hosted a workshop and a public discussion on Nantucket in March, 2012. Ann's visit to the Island was prompted by downtown merchants who want to explore different ways to organize the downtown business association to promote long-term year-round sustainability, and to flourish and revitalize the core downtown. Her recommendations have led to further research into ways to create a sustainable mechanism to manage and enhance the downtown business district through a business and economic consultant led by a steering committee of local merchants.
