Williams allocated funds to HABNET Chamber of Commerce for the purpose of organizing a Merchant Association on Nostrand Avenue from Farragut Rd to Snyder Ave.   This initiative is new and still in progress.

There are many benefits to having a  Merchant  Association, including:

● Civic engagement allows merchants to join forces

● Networking opportunities to share information and resources

● Collaboration among merchants to improve the commercial corridor

● Speaking with one voice to officials & city agencies about needs and concerns
