Chamber of Commerce Confronts Offenses to the Senses in Business District
The Chamber of Commerce of the Incorporated Village of Garden City has proven in their latest issue of the Business Bulletin that not only are they a voice for the local merchants, but they are advocates for the consumers as well. President Bertram Donley has used his page one venue in their newsletter to take strong stands on issues from parking to the overdevelopment of central Nassau County. He has once again used the newsletter to take a stand within the business community on beautifying the commercial district of the Village. While commending the Village on its significant investment in the appearance of the area with the Franklin Avenue Beautification Project, he notes that without the merchants themselves getting involved in beautifying the area, consumers will not be drawn to the area to shop and conduct business.
