CMBA Meeting Notes

Our guest at the September meeting of the Cedar Mill Business Association was Bruce Wood of Foundation Real Estate Development (FRED). He is working with Polygon to develop the 15-acre shopping center along Barnes Road, former site of the Teufel Nursery.

He showed us sketches of the center, which will include a “gourmet grocery” and a large entertainment business that will include bowling and arcade games. There will also be several “anchor” restaurants along the main street that will stretch from Barnes and meet up with the road through the Timberland housing development.

Smaller shops and restaurants will fill out the approximately 45 businesses that will make up the center. Office space will occupy the second floors of many of the shops. The additional commercial properties, south of the “main street” and across Barnes, are not being developed at this time. If everything goes as planned, the first shops will open in Spring 2009.

CMBA announcements included mention of the Cedar Mill Cider Festival on October 14. There was also a call for volunteers to help get rid of the weeds growing around the stone blocks on Cornell. Thanks to whoever cleaned this up!

CMBA is now recruiting Board members and Officer candidates for elections that will be held next February. Volunteers are also sought for the CMBA program committee—get involved and help plan future meetings!

The October meeting will address a topic that many of our members have been asking for: how to create and implement an effective marketing/advertising plan for your business. The speaker is Rob Charlton, a partner in Charlton Engel Marketing (charltonmarketing.com). Join us at noon on Tuesday, October 9 for free pizza and an enlightening discussion.
