What should the Melrose BID do with $4 Million Grant?

At the beginning of their second year of operations, the Melrose Avenue Business Improvement District (BID) was notified that its application for $4 million in pedestrian-oriented capital improvements for public rights of way in the District was approved by the
MTA. Funding for this begins in 2019.

A plan for how these funds will be spent is currently being prepared. The Melrose BID Board wants to spend the money to enhance business as much as possible. They are requesting your assistance in establishing spending priorities for Melrose Avenue between Fairfax Avenue and Highland Avenue.

As part of that effort, they have developed a brief survey to gather ideas and information from people who have a real stake in a vibrant and thriving Melrose Avenue. Whether you live in the area, shop here, have a business or property here, or are just interested, please take a few moments to complete the survey to let them know what you like, what you’d like to see more of, and what could be improved. (We also mentioned this survey here about a month ago, but now the grant has been approved.) The survey is at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MelroseVision.

The Melrose BID has prepared a (pdf) document showing some of the accomplishments in its first year of operations. This might help you come up with how you would fill out the survey.
