Friday: Discuss Proposed Historic Nob Hill Main Street Program at Informative Lunch at Scalo

From the Proposed Historic Nob Hill Steering Committee: Nob Hill has embarked on applying to rejoin the Main Street program. In conjunction with one of the final phases of the application process, the principles and potential benefits of the program will be discussed at a lunch on Friday, April 10th, 2009 from 12 to 1:30 PM at Scalo Northern Italian Grill, 3500 Central SE, in the heart of Albuquerque's Historic Nob Hill. The event is hosted by the Steering Committee (see http://www.rt66central.com) with a presentation conducted by Rich Williams, the director of the NM Main Street program, a branch of the NM Department of Economic Development.

The Steering Committee wishes to reach out to people, businesses, and organizations with an interest in the continued success of the Nob Hill area about the effort to join the Main Street program, and its potential short- and long-term benefits. Much of what is seen today in the Nob Hill area is a direct outgrowth of past participation in the program. The Steering Committee hopes to build on the previous effort to solidify Nob Hill's reputation as a city, state, and regional showpiece of sustainable economic development.

Everyone interested in learning more is encouraged to attend Friday's lunch meeting. Please RSVP to Jim Neustel, jim@earthhero.org, 505.710.6256 or Duane W. Bargar, dwbargar@hotmail.com, 505.321.0650.
