Several weeks ago there was a post about what Chatham residents wanted http://www.chicagonow.com/concerned-citizens-of-chatham/2011/10/what-chatham-residents-want/to see in their community. Since that post residents have sent emails and made comments on this subject.
This past weekend our Alderman issued a press release encouraging residents "To Shop Local". There was an intersting comment made about the press release
Revitalizing the busineeses sounds great but the businesses need to revitalize their vision to what people want in the 21st Century. The old ways of eating have been proven to be unhealthy and the consumers palette for music, books etc. has expanded. Make it relevant and the people will come to purchase
So I decided to compile the results and send a letter to my Alderman. Here is my letter
So will the letter help?
