An idea, feedback requested

Congratulations to the newspaper and our local businesses on a very excellent SMALL BUSINESS WEEK publication.

Dear Editor

Congratulations to the newspaper and our local businesses on a very excellent SMALL BUSINESS WEEK publication.

Who knew we had so many?

This made me realize that the empty eyes of empty businesses downtown could impact us less (I have talked to others) if they were not so empty looking.

Helping us look on the positive aspects at spaces just waiting for tenants: How about windows filled with ART WORK?

Business owners, teachers and above all students (any age, any ability), I know this would require work and effort but, hopefully could be regarded as a fun project by those who felt they could participate .

Sorry I cannot bring more ‘to the drawing board’ than the idea.

Sincerely,

Margaret (Meg) Harvey
