A new business association has been formed to help promote the Broadway Corridor, says Daniel Kim, owner of the G.C. Wireless store at 522 S. Broadway.
Kim will be the Broadway Area Business Association’s first president.
The group’s 15 members and City Councilman James Kraft (D-1) held their first meeting on March 18, Kim says.
“Our first goals are to elect board leadership, to put bylaws in place, and to plan another Broadway cleanup,” said Kim.
The cleanup will be held April 26, 9 a.m.- 12 p.m. and will include cleaning the tree pits, replacing broken bricks, and re-mulching the area.
“I’m hoping that an arborist from the city will come out and prune the trees as well,” Kim added.
He says that all business owners in the Broadway area are welcome to join. The organization’s membership area includes Broadway from Fleet St. to Lombard St., and the Broadway side streets between Bond and Ann streets.
The Broadway Area Business Association plans to meet the fourth Thursday of each month.
