Members from the D.C. technology community recently sent a letter to city officials with recommendations on how to promote small business expansion around the area, The Washington Post reports.

The move mirrors the D.C. Council’s upcoming decision on whether or not to allow a $32.5 million tax credit for the web-based firm, LivingSocial, which if granted, would enable the company to keep its headquarters in the District.

The Post writes that some suggestions include:

  • subleasing commercial space to start ups at low rates
  • using city-owned property to establish a tech hub
  • introducing business development programs to promote new information technology innovations and offerings

Individuals from Greater Greater Washington and InTheCapital drafted the letter, applauding Mayor Vincent C. Gray’s (D) recent efforts in support of tech.-geared small businesses throughout D.C.

They also included several recommendations on how to further help and support technology business expansion in the area, according to the Post.
