Biz Buzz: Creating a Buzz About Your Business District
Want to put your neighborhood on the map? The URA's Biz Buzz Program is designed to help business district organizations, such as business associations, chambers of commerce, community based organizations and community development corporations, spur neighborhood business district revitalization through short and medium term achievable projects and activities*. The goals of Biz Buzz are to bring newcomers into neighborhood business districts and create energy and excitement about the business district through media and word-of-mouth.
*This program is not available to individual businesses. For more information about Biz Buzz contact Josette Fitzgibbons at 412.255.6686, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
