Planning a small-business-friendly post-COVID Evanston

Support our small business community that has been decimated by the pandemic. We can rebuild and refill empty storefronts in a manner that is equitable and accessible for all.

We can incentivize makers, artisans, creators and independent contractors to get out of their basements and into storefronts. We can engage with the city and look to waive licensing fees, expedite processes and work with potential business owners to bolster their success. We can establish lines of communication between existing, successful, businesses and newly created concepts to help them successfully navigate the local landscape and enjoy prosperity for years to come.
