SIS Rebrand:Sanford Institute for Savings hasn’t been sold! It’s just undergoing a rebrand to Partners Bank this summer that commences July 1st.

New Hampshire Theatre Project Open House: Does the West End Studio Theatre really connect to an underground canal? What does the future hold for WEST and NHTP? Join them for an open house (and get a tour of the canal) this Saturday, April 13th from 2-4 pm. 

West End Residential Parking: Continues to be an issue. City Council members don’t think the proposed test plan will get enough votes to pass, but we all agree that more discussion needs to happen so we can find a solution that meets the needs of all of the residents and businesses of our district. The proposed test study has 30 days remaining to get 75% of the required signatures.

WESTIVAL: It sounds early, but this is when we start planning for Westival 2019. Please come to the May 2019 meeting with your ideas on venue, structure, and how your business would like to participate.
