Commercial and Business Development Focus Group

The commercial and business development focus group was held on March 30th at the Trinidad Recreation Center. The meeting was attended by 32 local residents who shared their thoughts about existing businesses in their neighborhoods. Issues brought up in the discussion included the fact that the increased use of commercial space for bars and entertainment venues along H Street has crowded out neighborhood-serving retailers. Focus group attendees also commented that employees of local businesses often make shoppers feel uncomfortable by being overly suspect of shoplifters. Residents also explained that they do not shop in the neighborhood because higher quality goods and services are available in Virginia and Maryland shopping centers.
