Advocacy for Lake Street Corridor Businesses 

Advocacy is the primary tool through which the Lake Street Council enables, empowers, and encourages our entrepreneurs to become involved. We also view advocacy as the practice through which all voices are heard, not just specific businesses, organizations, or policymakers.

When we advocate, we express your concerns and priorities, press for recognition of your rights, and insist on the importance of your voice in public policy.

Finding and nurturing leadership in our business community with passion and commitment is at the core of the Lake Street Council's advocacy work.

If you have questions, concerns, or comments about a local policy, ordinance, or regulation, feel free to contact Allison Sharkey at 612.824.7420 or
