Community and Business Marketing
The BID is continually making an effort to develop Atlantic Avenue’s identity. We created a logo and tagline for the district and we are reinforcing this through our banners, business cards, signs, and online presence. We produce events throughout the year and promote Atlantic Avenue through investments in public relations to get positive media coverage about the avenue in local and city-wide media.
Beautification and Streetscape Projects
The BID maintains over 300 tree pits and trees in the district, protecting them with tree guards, and beautifying our corridor with new trees and annual spring and summer plantings.
We pay for supplemental sanitation services seven days per week. These services focus primarily on picking up and bagging litter to ensure the streets remain clean. These services also include painting of street furniture and graffiti removal in the warmer months. To report a sanitation incident, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The BID advocates for the vitality of our corridor: for our small businesses, property owners, and residents’ quality of life. We push for better Atlantic Avenue traffic mitigation and pedestrian safety; are an active member and voice of the Brooklyn Queens Expressway Transformation, a coalition focused on the redesign of the BQE; and regularly attend Brooklyn Community Board 2 and local NYPD meetings. We support business and property owners through the Landmarks Preservation Commission permit process, and stay on top of local and citywide public policies that impact our district.
