Mount Vernon a must do!

"I cannot tell you how much we appreciate all of the City's help and guidance that made the Mount Vernon Starbucks project successful! The City's team was amazing; in 16 years of building Starbucks in cities all over the world this was the best experience of them all. I was impressed with the City's ability to make decisions, their willingness to help us, and the speed in which information passed through the City. We really look forward to working with the City again in the future and know that the City has the right team in place to achieve the extraordinary."
- Matt Lessard, Wilcox Construction
