Chance Horiuchi - on Havana street
Chance Horiuchi from On Havana Street was our speaker this week.    The Havana Business Improvement District (BID) d.b.a. On Havana Street, is a special district (Colorado Revised Statues 31-25-1203) in Aurora/Arapahoe County Colorado created in 2007 by business and neighborhood leaders and Aurora city staff working together to build a stronger, better community.   The stakeholders are committed to promoting commerce and community On Havana Street. There are 209 real commercial properties and approximately 500 businesses. A 9-member board, made up of all sizes and types of businesses from different sections of Havana Street, oversees district programming. As of April 2, 2018, Gayle Jetchick, Executive Director, and Chance Horiuchi, Executive Director in Training are the two staff members responsible for day-to-day activities On Havana Street.   On Havana Street runs 4.3 miles along Havana from 6th Avenue on the north to Dartmouth Avenue on the south, swinging the corners at major intersections. It is situated at one corner of the “opportunity triangle” formed by three other major redevelopment projects in the area–Lowry, Stapleton and Fitzsimons/Anchutz Campus.
Chance covered a lot of information but here are a few highlights:
1)  Argenta a new development where the old
     Fanfare building use to stand looks to break
     ground in spring of 2019.
2) Shortline Auto Group announced October 9th
     the purchase of Suss Automotive and joining
     the Havana Motor Mile as a Buick/GMC
3) Longstanding dance hall The Stampede is 
     going through major renovation with a new
     owner looking to incorporate a greater variety
     of music and some seating.   
Chance had a lot more to say and show....please check out the presentation below for more information.
Thank you Chance for telling us all about On Havana Street. 
Next week: Shannon and Kimberly will be providing a website tutorial.  Bring your laptop, tablet, or phone to join in the fun.
