Business Stakeholder Collaboration

Engaging our SR37 Business Stakeholders continues to be a primary objective of the 37Thrives campaign.  Since July 2018, monthly business stakeholder meetings have been hosted to provide a direct channel of communication.  A few highlights of this multi-year collaboration include:

  • Monthly meetings to share construction updates, answer questions and get businesses involved in marketing opportunities.
  • Direct communication with email updates on construction details, schedules, and notice of restrictions–prior to public posting.
  • One-to-One collaboration/support.
  • Media/advertising participation.
