To maintain and enhance economic activity on Pitkin Avenue, the BID has made a commitment to beautify the area streetscape. To that end, a significant portion of the organization’s budget is designated for community beautification to make the streets and sidewalks of the district more attractive. BID-sponsored projects included:
The BID has ordered and will place more than 40 custom-designed trash receptacles on many district street corners, replacing often battered wire municipal baskets. These durable bronze receptacles emblazoned with the BID’s distinctive logo will make an immediate impact on the area and serve the additional purpose of defining the district’s boundaries.
Additionally, local and national merchants will have an opportunity to rent space on the receptacles for advertising.
Each holiday season, the BID installs lighting throughout the district.
