Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito And Others Retail Diversity Plan From Harlem To Hollis

December 14, 2017

New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, Land Use Committee Chair David Greenfield, Small Business Committee Chair Robert Cornegy and Subcommittee on Zoning and Franchises Chair Donovan Richards released the Council’s 2017 report, Planning for Retail Diversity: Supporting NYC’s Neighborhood Businesses. The report is a detailed analysis of the challenges faced by New York City’s storefront business owners and a comprehensive set of recommendations to protect and promote retail businesses. Speaker Mark-Viverito called for a plan to address the issues facing neighborhood businesses in her 2016 State of the City address.

“While headlines often go to major multinational corporations whose names adorn Manhattan skyscrapers, much of the economic engine of our city is contained in the countless storefronts that line our blocks. Retail and restaurant business owners employ 600,000 people and provide critical goods and services to our residents. Our report sets forth a policy agenda to ensure the diversity and character of our city is reflected by our community businesses. It is our hope that this report will serve as a blueprint for comprehensive policy to foster retail diversity, affordability, and access throughout all New York City neighborhoods,”

said Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito.
