While retail is the primary focus at Settlers Green, the commitment to “shoptainment” here is evident in the mall’s many playscapes, photo opportunities, and the new Streetside Art Project featuring works of public art by local and regional artists. In addition to Streetside’s ten new stores and locally owned restaurant, shoppers will savor a sense of excitement and commitment to the community, taking shopping to the next level here.
An important part of Streetside’s Grand opening will include a unique fundraising partnership with Mountain Top Music, intended to put the music education and performance non-profit organization closer to their fundraising goal to create a community-oriented performing arts center and gathering place. Settlers Green has pledged a $15,000 match for any donations made to Mountain Top Music between September 15-October 15th, and the Streetside Grand Opening will create multiple opportunities for community giving to be matched.
