THINK GLOBALLY, SHOP LOCALLY BUSINESS CAMPAIGN
Release Date: May 12, 2009
Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner, Town Clerk Judith Beville and Scarsdale High School senior Anthony Schepis have launched a campaign to help local businesses succeed. They are going to spend the next six weeks promoting local businesses. Short video’s highlighting participating businesses will be taped and aired on the Greenburgh You tube channel. This is part of a local effort to help businesses survive in this difficult economy.
This is just one of many action steps we plan to take to help local businesses. We plan to create a business registry, hope to list businesses to the towns GIS system to allow residents to see locations of businesses and also want to publish a business directory and e list of Greenburgh businesses that will be circulated to the community.
We also want to create an interactive communication system where businesses can communicate with town officials when they need help from us. The town will also contact businesses advising of possible federal/state grant opportunities. We will also reach out to local businesses before the Town Board takes any action that could impact the business as it relates to any land use actions/development proposals. We also hope to host small business workshops to help businesses improve their existing venture.
If your business is interested in being interviewed for a You Tube segment highlighting your business – there is no cost involved to you. Please e mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 993-1545 or 438-1343. Anthony Schepis will be working on this project every day – as part of his senior internship project.
