Inspired by the festival atmosphere filling Eldridge Parkway during last spring’s EnergyFest, The Energy Corridor District is organizing an Eldridge Parkway Merchants Association to find engaging ways to promote local businesses.
A recent discovery meeting invited the diverse group of merchants, restaurateurs, hotels and service providers filling Eldridge Parkway from Enclave Parkway to Briar Forest.
“We’re in the planning stages of an Eldridge Parkway Merchants Association,” explains Rachael Weaver, Community Relations Coordinator for The Energy Corridor District. ‘”The idea sprung from EnergyFest and comments we heard from our Energy Corridor merchants about the event.”
EnergyFest 2013 featured entertainment, activities, food and local businesses in the District’s first-ever street festival, and one of the few ever hosted in West Houston.
“Our goal is to discuss new ways to promote the merchant centers along Eldridge Parkway,” says Weaver.
