I have driven through Chestertown and seen its many vacant storefronts, and I have read about the recent effort to plan revitalization of their downtown.
But recently, while driving home through Warrensburg, I counted seven vacant storefronts on Main Street alone, and I hear that number will soon be eight.
While talking to a local entrepreneur recently, we both remarked on how Warrensburg needs more businesses offering vital goods and services.
A few we thought would make our town more attractive to new home owners are: a bakery, an apparel store, bookstore, upscale clothing boutiques, a delicatessen, a music store, pet shop, and on and on. Do you have any ideas how we as a town can attract new businesses to Warrensburg? I would welcome your comments and suggestions, I will keep your name anonymous if you wish. This is a hard time in our economy and now is the time to express your ideas.
Remember it takes a community to build or rebuild a town. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 623-9744 and I will give you an address if you wish to mail me suggestions or I will write down your dictated response via phone conversation.
