  • INTRODUCE SELF CROWD PARTICIPATION How many business owners do we have today? How many of you are considering opening a business?
  • So, what is the Great Streets Initiative? The Great Streets Initiative is a multi-agency effort to transform 9 under-invested corridors into thriving and inviting neighborhood centers. We do this by working with DDOT to transform the physical streetscape of corridors, and leveraging Tax Increment Financing, grants, and low-interest loans to spur private investment in mixed-use developments and retail options.
  • These are the District’s Great Streets. If you have an interest in doing projects along any of these corridors, please contact me. But, today, in particular, we’re going to talk about H Street.
