it's funny, all of the things you mention have been done by the International Village BIA - they have tourism Hamilton set up a booth all summer, they pressure property owners to get their act together (that BIA is responsible for the Spallacci project moving forward), they regularly market their empty space for lease and buildings for sale on their website. The Mustard Fest is a great event in a great location (unlike the gravel parking lot fiasco). What made that parking lot event even more perplexing is beautiful Gore Park sitting there across the road just begging to be used as more than a bus stop or parking lot. I agree with the BIA's message. The city's priorities seem all out of whack. But the fact is, they need to lead by example. each individual store owner needs to have pride in their building and business. If the BIA doesn't take the lead role, nobody will.
