I am not a resident of Homewood, but lived there from grade school (Belmar) to high school (Westinghouse) and college (CMU and PITT). My parents still live there as well as friends. I am very concerned about the neighborhood and have been for a while. The violence, the neglect and the lack of a business corridor bothers me, because I remember when it was a vibrant and bustling community.
I am currently starting a group of like minded people who want to join forces to bring businesses back to Homewood.
Homewood as you know has a lot of challenges, so it’s going to take all of us to really change things. We cannot expect anyone else to fix up our community, but us.
So a little about me, I am an entrepreneur with over 10 years of experience in starting and operating different type of businesses as a wholesaler, distributor, vendor, consultant, and retailer.
I am currently looking to start a business in Homewood, if I can find a location which is really hard because, there are not a lot of options.
