State of Retail in Downtown Lafayette
7pm on Monday, July 23
Lafayette Library and Learning Center
The Lafayette City Council and Planning Commission will hear from a panel of experts on the current state of retail in downtown Lafayette. The City Council asked for this workshop during its May 14th meeting in an effort to understand why there is an increase in the number of vacant storefronts and to determine if there are any measures that the City can implement to encourage retail growth. The panel will consist of:
– Basil Christopoulos, downtown property owner
– Steve Cortese, downtown property owner
– John Cumbelich, John Cumbelich & Associates
– Craig Semmelmeyer, Main Street Property Services, Inc.
Even though this concerns Lafayette specifically – It could provide insights into retail in all of Lamorinda.
