Share Your Opinion with Us

The Board recognizes that the community wants a café, but would like to do more research to determine if it is a viable business solution. They want whatever is done with the space to be something that will benefit the community and be sustainable. As a result, the board is looking at the perspective tenants and also exploring the option of putting vending machines in the space.

To help gather community input, the community is invited to take this short survey about the space: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/cafespace
