Local First, light rail highlighted at meeting

The North Mountain Business Alliance (NMBA) invites local business owners to attend its next meeting, set for 11:30 a.m.-1:15 p.m. Thursday, June 6 at the SSC Boring building, 1951 W. North Lane.

Guest speakers will be Kimber Lanning, founder of Local First Arizona and owner of Stinkweed’s, and Albert Santana, light rail project administrator for the city of Phoenix.

Lanning will give a short presentation about how the community “wins” when individuals and businesses purchase from locally owned companies rather than the “big boxes.” Santana will talk about the light rail expansion that currently is under way, up 19th Avenue to Dunlap Avenue. Santana will share construction updates as well as upcoming planning for the future of the system.

The meeting is free; lunch is provided. RSVPs are requested to Marcia@nmballiance.org or by calling 602-997-6164.
