As the year comes to an end, we at West Roxbury Main Streets would like to take a moment to reflect on the important year and milestones we have reached and continue to work towards. To celebrate a great year, we will be hosting our Annual Meeting on February 7th at West on Centre, and you are welcome to join us.

 

In 2016,

  • With the work of many volunteers and sponsors, we had the most successful Taste of West Roxbury to date with over 300 tickets sold.
  • With these proceeds, we dedicated to planning for the future of West Roxbury and WRMS through our Visioning with MAPC.
  • The Visioning West Roxbury report was released in September of 2016 and highlighted twenty-four Recommended Actions in the next few years.
  • WRMS is currently in progress with six of these recommendations:
    • Host seasonal outdoor music festivals
    • Market the district to recruit new businesses
    • Engage landlords of vacant properties
    • Create & host an open community calendar on WRMS.org
    • Continue to host a business directory and update property opportunities on WRMS.org
    • Serve as the community’s source of information, especially regarding events & public meetings

In 2017,

  • WRMS has plans to expand on other recommendations in 2017, including but not limited to:
    • Hold a walk audit, which will help us address the safety, beautification, and public art in the district
  • WRMS will continue to engage with the community in multiple ways to enhance the district and business success, this will include but is not limited to:
    • Co-hosting women’s networking events
    • Collaborating with the West Roxbury Business & Professional Association
    • Supporting businesses through promotion & assistance
    • Encouraging the community to shop local through events & activities
    • Hosting three committees open to the community
    • (Economic Redevelopment, Design, & Promotional Committees)

 

In 2017, we hope that you can join us at our events, volunteer for our committees, and/or renew your membership. We are happy to have your involvement in reaching our potential as a community.
