Committee Report from Kara Alnasrawi, Committee Chair of the Downtown Action Group:
The Downtown Action Group (DAG) meets monthly to share ideas and discuss issues relating to the vitality of the downtown core. In the spring of this year the group launched an “Adopt Your Sidewalk” campaign to encourage business owners to keep the streets of downtown Burlington beautiful and inviting to both tourists and residents alike. DAG has also taken initiatives to address street level safety and security issues that members felt were effecting their businesses.
Moving forward DAG has set out an ambitious agenda which includes addressing the soon to be vacant bus station area on Cherry Street, the beautification and decoration of the side streets, and the street level use of alcohol in and around member businesses.
