Over the last two and half days we’ve completed a mapping exercise of Windsor’s Downtown Business Improvement Area. With the help of two ‘interns’, Josh and Rosina of BCL, Chris and I have walked each street within our defined catchment area recording information about all businesses and vacancies. An areal map posted at HQ helped us track our progress. We crossed off streets on the map as they were completed, also summarizing our experience of each street into one descriptive statement (i.e. ‘Chatam: entertainment for the people’, or ‘University: a little less bary than Chatam;). We are also inputting all of the information we’ve collected including, businesses addresses, names, functions, and any additional observations that could be made from viewing the storefront from the street, into a spread sheet for additional analysis that will feed into our final piece for this residency, the ‘Tip Sheet’.
