Acton’s a great place to live and a terrific place to own a business. Acton’s people love to support their local businesses! How do we attract business owners to locate in Acton? My professional knowledge of local real estate and experience as a small business owner will help me create strategies to draw businesses to our town and to help create policies that will help Acton businesses thrive. At the same time, we must prioritize equity and inclusion for all business owners.
Small business growth initiatives I’d like to work with stakeholders in our community to implement:
- List vacant commercial space on the town’s website or link to a website that does this
- Make the town’s website more business friendly
- Develop friendlier zoning
- Business opportunity outreach to diverse populations
My years of experience as a local real estate professional and entrepreneur will enhance our Board’s knowledge base as we approach small business development challenges and opportunities.
