ENF has long recognized that a successful commercial corridor is a necessary component in securing the community's continued viability, and through the use of our Commercial Revitalization Program, we have worked fervently to ensure that our commercial corridor remains vibrant. In 1995, we secured five million dollars in commercial revitalization and capital improvement grants from the New York State Division of Housing and Community Renewal and the New York Public Development Corporation to renovate twenty vacant store fronts and overhaul the streetscape on Church and Nostrand Avenues.
The boundaries of the commercial corridor are: Church Avenue between Rogers and Utica Avenue; Rogers Avenue between Snyder Avenue and Linden Blvd; and Nostrand Avenue between Linden Blvd and Snyder Avenue. Today our Commercial Revitalization Program continues to work with merchants, property owners, tenants and elected officials. Our objective is to make the Church/Nostrand Avenue Commercial Corridor a shopping destination frequented by shoppers from neighborhoods throughout Brooklyn. To achieve this objective, we partner with merchants to develop and implement initiatives designed to foster economic development, improve physical appearance, attract and retain shoppers and expand business. We also offer marketing assistance for new and existing businesses.
NYC Clean Streets is an example of one of the initiatives. This program is a partnership between ENF and New York Department of Small Business Services (SBS) and is designed to keep the streets along the commercial corridor free of trash, graffiti and illegal bills and posters.
