Greetings! My name is Steve Grillo and I am excited to announce that I am the new Executive Director of Explore Millburn-Short Hills – the Special Improvement District (SID) serving a five neighborhood area here in beautiful Millburn Township.
I am an urban strategist with experience in Business Improvement Districts (BID), economic development, affordable housing, transportation planning, community advocacy, grant writing, industrial development and inter-governmental affairs.
I hold a Master’s Degree in Urban Planning from Hunter College in Manhattan and have worked for the federal government, a major utility and in non-profit affordable housing. The majority of my career has been spent supporting small businesses and creating BIDs during my nearly 10 years with the Staten Island Economic Development Corporation. With that organization, I created three BIDs as well as six other neighborhood development programs.
I have had a varied and interesting career in the community development field which has afforded me the ability to work on innovative projects including housing policy and construction, brownfield redevelopment and various transportation, land use, park space and master planning efforts. I hope to utilize these diverse skills to enhance the work I do with Explore Millburn-Short Hills and to create a collaborative, engaged and holistic plan for development of the SID.
I am thrilled for the opportunity to work with the board of directors, elected officials and of course – property and business owners – to move the SID forward. As we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic it is essential that we reevaluate the way that business operate, how local services are provided and how customers are attracted. Millburn-Short Hills businesses have so much to offer and by enhancing the already existing base and attracting new opportunities, the future is limitless.
I invite you to meet with me either at your site or at the Explore Millburn-Short Hills office located at Town Hall (375 Millburn Avenue). Please contact me at email@example.com to schedule an appointment so that I can learn more about your business.
