The North Main Street committee of SNA has been hard at work on forming the formal North Main Street Merchants Association, a separate non-profit organization with the purpose of bettering this important and historic commercial corridor. They are very pleased to announce that the first meeting of this new organization has taken place. The organization still needs to be officially formed as a non-profit, and this first meeting was held to gauge merchant interest in such an organization.
On this past Wednesday evening, its first meeting was held at The Sandwich Hut. Present were members of the SNA North Main Street committee, as well as eleven interested merchants. Also, there are several other interested merchants who could not make this meeting, but who hope to join the organization.
It was an encouraging start. We look forward to formalizing the organization and continuing the work of turning North Main Street back into a neighborhood main street that is safe, well-lit, pedestrian-friendly, and full of occupied commercial and residential properties.
Peter Kammerer of the Sandwich Hut has been a major driving force behind this new organization, as well as behind the SNA North Main Street committee since its inception more than eight years ago. Others instrumental to the project include Summit neighbors Anneliese Greenier and Greg Gerritt, SNA Preseident George Schietinger and SNA VP Jim Kelley. North Main Street has a long road ahead, and theirs and others continued efforts are appreciated by all.
