The Impact of Jarvis Station

Wrote the following on The RP & Beyond - "El" Improvements on Far North Side :

The closing of Jarvis Station would be detrimental to our local businesses.

I have organized hundreds of events in support of the Jarvis Square businesses. At roughly 10 to 40 visitors to Rogers Park per event, the local businesses in Jarvis would definitely lose potential new customers and sales.

Another point that most have not considered, is that once a person discovers the existence of Jarvis area businesses, they have the opportunity to return for meetings and lunches independently. This has happened more times than  you may consider.

These customers very often use the Jarvis Red Line rather than driving due to the overly developed population density of our neighborhood.
