FutureHeights announces Best of the Heights on Oct. 17

From May through August, Heights residents voted for their favorite Heights businesses in 20 categories, including best new business. Each year, FutureHeights—a nonprofit dedicated to promoting civic engagement in the Heights through information, education and advocacy, and the publisher of the Heights Observer community news—conducts the Best of the Heights survey to recognize the unique attributes of independently owned businesses in the Heights, and their contributions to the local economy.

“Heights residents recognize how lucky they are to have such an amazing diversity of independent businesses in our community and want to show their appreciation,” said Lloyd Bell, board president of FutureHeights.
