Oniracom CEO Jacob Tell met with Michael Montenegro of PODER to listen to their concerns about the perception that The Lagoon District is promoting gentrification of the neighborhood.
As Jacob points out, we are here to shine a light on businesses in the area that do not typically receive social media marketing support. At the same time we want to listen to all concerns and give voice to business owners in the community.
Watch the KEYT News Video highlighting our meeting with PODER.
We look forward to addressing all concerns people have, and ensuring The Lagoon District supports ALL businesses in the area.
