Here’s The Scoop

IS IT PAYBACK….. BEING FISCALLY RESPONSIBLE….. A BUSINESS LIFELINE?……

The expected responses about the possibility of the Chamber being relocated….to a Commercial Avenue storefront….

Will it be looked at…..like the “locking out” of the VFD by the BSO……..to many LBTS residents?

It needs to be handled….in the right manner….and not ahead of the budget…..

If it is truly to help with traffic to the businesses….why not try a “Satellite Chamber” to see if it makes that difference?….

A 3 month stint…. empty storefronts might “bite” for a trial month-to-month rental….just as the Town is doing with the warehouse….

What will be the real cost to the Chamber?….with the move…including the change of the address on everything….

What will be the actual savings?….

What will be done with the existing building?…..

A Post Office …needs the approval of the government…and should take quite some time…that is if it is even a viable option…. ….in these times of the Postal service losing business….and consolidating their facilities….

A Post Office Business….a gift shop/UPS Mail Station…would also be iffy……… could they afford the rent?…..

Can the “visitor” traffic to the Chamber be verified?

A reader recently emailed to say…he believes the numbers are inflated ……that he believes that everyone who walks in is counted….employees….residents…whether it’s for a meeting…or to pick up the local paper….YIKES?…

BCbythesea…. as one resident said….” It needs to be handled delicately.”……..

As this writer responded….”yes….and not like a bull in a china shop.”….

more to come….
