Chamber’s work finished, but positive efforts to continue on northwest side
Statement of Alderman Robert W. Puente March 5, 2014
I would like to thank everyone involved in the great work of the Granville-Brown Deer Chamber, which is being dissolved after a vote of its board last week. The chamber served as a force for partnership and collaboration linking the city’s northwest side (including most of the 9th District) and the Village of Brown Deer.
The Granville-Brown Deer Chamber played an important role in community building events and initiatives, including “Diversity Dialogue” seminars, a free summer “Community Vibes” concert series, business and community expos, “Vision Series” luncheons, ribbon-cutting ceremonies to welcome new businesses, and a variety of excellent networking events.
The chamber fulfilled its role and completed its course of work, and the creation in 2013 of the Granville Business Improvement District (BID) 48 will ensure that the needs of local businesses and manufacturers continue to be addressed, and that economic development and beneficial improvements will be championed going forward.
