^It sounds like I am saying the Conservatory caters to the neighborhood. It does not, they celebrate Bastille Day and Christmas and have paid goat yoga and online mixology classes, yet have zero outreach to GP and actively profile young Black people who go inside.

Prioritize not gentrifying this area and not closing down any Black-owned businesses already existing new the development (like the Hatchery did) and instead finding solutions to support them. Prioritize the development not turning into a place that only caters to whites, but instead to the neighborhood (like the Conservatory). More restaurants than retail space. Give us a small market. A pharmacy. Save the cutesy stuff until the basics are covered.
