Create a Thriving Business District
Clean and well-kept sidewalks are appreciated by shoppers in your district. Cleaning and maintenance of sidewalks and planting strips is not performed by the City but is the responsibility of the nearest business or property owner.
If you would like assistance cleaning your sidewalks, there are several
private firms that will provide sidewalk cleaning and other related services
To dispose of waste collected by the contractor, you can either designate a business dumpster as the waste drop-off or provide a dumpster dedicated to street/sidewalk cleaning.
