      If there is a legal way to do this, it is worth consideration. Perhaps Star Postal would still be here if the landlord faced the alternative of paying fees on vacant spaces.

        yes! What a great idea --- good one, Molly! BDW may be using the CC for classes during the Thursday hours (?) but perhaps there is some kind of comparable, unused space that the city can offer for this purpose -- the Teen Center (too small?). Maybe the city can approach owners of one of the many empty storefronts in the Village or on Visitacion about a short-term situation.

          It's encouraging to see this raised publicly because I've often wondered if our city leaders have an unofficial no-growth policy. To grow, we need to reach out and attract -- actively recruit and accommodate on a sustained basis -- people (who might not live in Brisbane) to build businesses here, and people (who might not live in Brisbane) to frequent these businesses. It seems clear that Brisbane alone cannot support all of the wonderful businesses that Juanita imagines .... it seems we can't even keep a Sunday farmer's market going. Business owners need to pay their bills and have enough to live, just like the rest of us. The situation seems so far gone (the number of empty storefronts is daunting) that the comment about incentives sounds spot on. Can property owners be motivated to reset their leasing costs with the help of incentives from the city? Are taxes an area where adjustments can be made? Are there city staff with expertise in business recruitment? Does the Chamber have an interest in contributing ideas and resources to this effort? Lastly, is city staff doing the research to learn about how other towns have approached this? It's challenging because Brisbane is really unique .... not easy to compare to other peninsula communities due to population, location, demographics, access. I applaud the city for opening up this topic .... I have also often wondered whether Brisbane residents themselves favor no-growth, so whether we do or don't, here is an opportunity to tell our leaders.

                  Thank you for your idea and apologies for the very delayed response. This would actually be a very good idea for the new Economic Development Forum that we’ll be opening on this site by Friday the 26th.

                  We will be closing up this current forum as the current software only allows us to have one open at any given time. As this will be an Economic Development forum, start thinking about your answers to…

                  What do you like?
                  What do you think should be enhanced?
                  What things in the past do you think should be brought back?
                  What things are missing from our town?
                  What things do you not want to see in Brisbane?

                  If you wouldn’t mind suggesting this idea on the new forum, I would appreciate it. The ideas will be taken to the Council at their Economic Development Workshop taking place in November.

                  Again, the forum should…
