After much negotiating, we’ve finally moved into our new office space! We’re in the former Neighborhood Service Center attached to the library, some very nice digs that we want to make available to the community as the Beacon Hill Resource Center. We’ll be able to host meetings, provide an information exchange, answer questions and work on all our projects out of this new space. We’re working together with the Beacon Hill Council to make this an active community resource, and increase staffing. Summer hours are right now limited to Friday 10-1; hours will increase in the fall.
We’ve just been told that we’ve received a grant for 2011 that will help us hire a staffer, fund small projects, and help build the organization. This is an exciting development for the Merchants Association, and will help us reach the many businesses on Beacon Hill who have no unifying representation, and to find out how we can help them serve our community. Our hope this year is to begin building a data base of every business and commercial property owner on Beacon Hill, to fund a beautification project such as banners in the commercial core, and to start a beatwalk by the end of the summer. And that’s just for starts! Please get involved if you, your business or your neighbors would like to see a stronger commercial district on Beacon Hill!
