The Geneva Business Improvement District (BID) is working with the City Council to complete a project called the “Full Tenant Initiative.” A database of descriptions, square footage, contacts, and other information for the buildings on Castle, Exchange, Seneca, and South Main Streets was a necessary addition to aid in the recruitment of potential tenants. Using the Geneva Assessor's Office property database and Ontario County's OnCor property assessment website as resources, the researcher created the requested database and also created a website showing the importance of the project for the vitality of the downtown area. The researcher learned about the initiatives currently underway in Geneva and the challenges that are experienced in city planning.
