Eat Down the Street Campaign

It's a simple concept developed by Ms Cinda Baxter of Minneapolis, MN, to promote the brick and mortar stores which are the lifeblood of our communities.  It is called the 3/50 project.  You can participate by selecting three local businesses you regard as essential to the business district and commit to spending just $50 a month as a demonstration of your concern for the health and well-being of your community.  "Eat down the Street" is geared toward supporting the local eateries.  The Bellevue establishments are numerous, all providing for great eats!  They are here for your enjoyment and vital to our local economy!

This 3/50 project concept echoes the most recent Bellevue Borough intiative with Allegheny Together, proselytizing to "put your money where your house is" as an effort to advance the mission of "growing Bellevue to its greatness!"
