Our local restaurants have been hit hard by the pandemic.
There is a growing number of empty storefronts in Wellesley's commercial areas.
Residents and business owners are invited to join a Zoom panel discussion on Thursday, March 18 from 9 to 10 a.m. to discuss these concerns. This event is hosted by the Newton Needham Regional Chamber.
Panelists include these local business owners:
As part of the conversation, learn about proposed Town bylaw changes that would allow smaller restaurants to serve alcohol. This measure, Article 21 on the 2021 Annual Town Meeting Warrant, will be considered by Town Meeting members in April.
If approved, this change would potentially help nurture and rebuild the dining scene in Wellesley and improve the economy.
Register in advance to participate in this discussion. The Zoom event is free to Chamber members and non-members.
