I would like to see the establishment of an organization tasked with keeping the sidewalks and common areas free of trash, similar to the Times Square Alliance in Manhattan, where employees walk the street collecting trash and performing small clean-up tasks.

Integral to the success of a rejuvenated downtown is maintaining a pleasant atmosphere that not only attracts people with amenities but keeps people returning because of a good experience. I believe one of the best ways to achieve that is a clean, well-kept downtown, which when observed becomes infectious as people take pride in their community.
This would also provide needed job opportunities.
