Councilmember Todd was pleased to cut the ribbons at three new Ward 4 small businesses in Takoma. A new Gladsyl/Allstate Insurance office relocated to Carroll Street, NW from Foggy Bottom; Artful Framing & Gallery relocated from Takoma Park, Maryland to Maple Street, NW; and the Big Bad Woof pet store expanded to a larger location across Maple Street, NW. The Councilmember was excited to support the expansion of small businesses in Ward 4. These enterprises help create vibrant commercial corridors with neighborhood-serving retail that enhance the quality of life for everyone. They create jobs for DC residents and bolster the entrepreneurial culture of our great city.
Ward 4 is at the cutting edge of economic development and growth in the District of Columbia. Recently, three other Ward 4 small businesses (The Lab DC, CYCLED Spin Studio, and La Mano Coffee Bar) received Great Streets Grants totaling over $120,000, which will help expand their businesses and further contribute to the neighborhood. Councilmember Todd looks forward supporting small business growth and development, and remains a committed partner in bringing more prosperity to Ward 4 communities.
