Economic Development Summit
For the past
several years, MPC has acted in partnership with other community institutions
and often has taken a leading role on projects and activities that improve the
quality of life in Community District 7 and the northwest Bronx. Building on its
success, MPC collaborates with its strategic partners and Lehman College to
coordinate a North Bronx Economic Development Summit.
The purpose of the summit is to provide valuable information to business owners,
perspective business owners, merchant groups/associations and community
organizations in order to stimulate economic growth by strengthening the
commercial districts and businesses in Community District 7.
The North Bronx Economic Development Summit sponsored by Citibank, provides a
venue where local development corporations, city officials, banks and business
leaders can come together. The event is geared towards accessing the needs of
businesses and merchant groups in order to provide them with the necessary
services and resources to enhance economic growth in the north Bronx. These
services would include: technical assistance; strategies for establishing and
strengthening merchant groups; information on BID formation, business loans,
banking services, healthcare coverage at businesses; and marketing strategies.
The Summit is held annually on a business day during Bronx Week in the month of
June and is sponsored by Citibank and Mosholu Preservation Corporation.
