Build a Main Street. Grow a Community.
“When East Somerville Main Streets started, each business worked more or less alone to grow. At the start, East Somerville Main Streets worked to build a relationship with each of the restaurant owners and then to bring us together as a community. Problem-solving has gotten a lot easier. We now solve our problems through communicating; we know who to talk to or where to address something and we can speak through one voice.” - Befekadu Defar, Owner of Fasika
