Stuart Eisenberg, executive director of the Hyattsville Community Development Corporation (CDC) shares the perspective of Ulman in recognizing the need for a strong relationship between Hyattsville and the University of Maryland. In an email exchange he remarked, “the Hyattsville CDC has always felt we share a sense of common community purpose. We are pleased to see the university continuing to seek to learn from Hyattsville’s revitalization lessons and efforts.”
The fact that both Chris Vigilante and Mike Franklin were recruited to open new locations in College Park was not lost on Eisenberg. “College Park has recruited from our local business talent to get a piece of ‘Hyattsville cool,’ to replicate or create new, interesting ventures,” he said.
