  • Beautification parternerships

    An innovative downtown clean-up program piloted by four prominent businesses in 2007 is being repeated this summer with five additional partners.

    The ‘Beautification Ambassador’ program was initiated by Edmonton Economic Development Corp. (EEDC) last summer in co-operation with the Edmonton Chamber of Commerce, Fairmont Hotel Macdonald and the Westin Edmonton. The partners equally co-funded one full-time person last summer to keep property perimeters clean.

    The 2008 summer program has an expanded ‘clean zone’ with the addition of five new partners: ATB Financial, Citadel Theatre, Edmonton Public Library, Shaw Conference Centre and Telus. All nine partners are equally co-funding two full-time street cleaners who began work on May 12. (Although not a co-funding partner, Promotional Wearhouse Inc. of Edmonton has also provided key services.)

    "This partnership of like-minded business leaders is making a visible difference to the cleanliness of downtown Edmonton," says Ron Gilbertson, President and CEO of EEDC. "We hope to show other Edmonton companies that 'beautification partnerships' are affordable, impactful and simple to start."

    Both summer cleaners this summer are also available to assist anyone needing information about Edmonton’s downtown attractions.

      Great idea, especially for properties with a large footprint.
