From the BHCA vacancy task force: "The Beacon Hill Civic Association's "Retail Vacancy Task Force" wants to find out which types of stores the residents would like to see open up in Beacon Hill, and then try to identify and contact owners of such stores about opening a shop here. Please help us by telling us what you'd like to have in Beacon Hill. Just fill out this survey."
