Due to all of our past severe snowfalls the city has made the following request of all of the businesses in the Greater Wards Corner Business Area:

In the event of future snow or ice storms, is it possible for the businesses in the area to shovel sidewalks on Granby Street and East & West Little Creek Road? During this last storm, many pedestrians and handicapped individuals in wheelchairs traversed in the traffic lanes to get where they were going because they couldn’t navigate the sidewalks. This was extremely hazardous for them and for the drivers of the vehicles who barely missed them. The city was dealing with clearing roadways and bridges and didn’t have the resources to clear sidewalks on city property. Perhaps businesses could extend their area of kindness and responsibility to make Wards Corner safer for all. Thanks so much.

The continued growth and improvement of your business area is crucial and depends on you and your involvement and the effort you are willing to commit. There is strength in numbers and that is why it is so important to have a strong Business Association, working together as one. Mark your calendar, come and join your fellow business partners. We have a lot to discuss.

Elyse Kalfus, President
Greater Wards Corner Area Business Association
