Bonome’s extensive tenure provided her team with the opportunity to work on and spearhead many notable projects, including:
- Negotiating a land sale agreement for a retail center at the Southwest corner of Madison and Western Avenues. Anchored by Pete’s Fresh Market, this center replaces a blighted and underutilized site while closing a former food desert.
