It’s no secret that business is competitive. But in JP, it’s also cooperative.

Andrew Zarro, executive director of JP Centre/South Main Streets, put it this way: “One of the things that’s great about JP is that business owners want other businesses to succeed.”

Last week eight local business owners and community leaders joined the board of Centre/South Main Streets. That brings the number of board members to 15, making it the organization’s largest board since it began in 2002. Centre/South Main Streets assists local businesses and enlivens the overall streetscape.

The board also elected officers:

Brown, who until recently served as president of the JP Business and Professional Association, said in a press release that the board represents a large cross-section of the neighborhood.

“I am very excited to get our board working to make JP Centre/South Main Streets the best main street organization in the Boston Main Street Program,” he said.

JP is also served by Main Street groups for Egleston and Hyde-Jackson.
