We warmly invite you to participate in the second of a series of interactive focus groups on small business needs.

What are you concerned about as a small business owner? What do you wish landlords, the City, and your neighbors understood about small businesses in this neighborhood? Come share with other business owners and begin to develop possible solutions. The ideas gathered in the focus group series will be summarized into policy recommendations.

After the focus group, both a lawyer and business counselor will be available for one-on-one questions and answers. It will be a great opportunity for businesses to get quick questions answered as well as make appointments for more in-depth advice.

Light refreshments will be served. Interpretation (Spanish & Chinese) available.
