The neighborhood around the Hanover Theatre is still a bit rough, and Germain and Rosen want something to be done.
“There are a lot of businesses that need sprucing up…maybe some new businesses,” says Rosen. ”I’m not saying we strong arm business owners…but maybe the administration should talk to the [business] owners…and try to make that stretch of stores look better and serve the theatre crowd better.”
“Can we come up with a game plan, a blue print for that [area] of the city?” asks Germain. ”A facade program, anything to make that area more appealing for theater-goers.”
While tax incentives or a facade program would be a huge help, they must have missed our news that something is going to happen down there.
