Keeping Ocean Avenue Clean and Safe
The OAA has a staff cleaning Ocean Avenue daily. Their yellow vest bears our OAA logo. Our goal is to make sure we have a clean corridor to welcome shoppers. So when we see our workers, don't hesitate to stop and thank them for taking good care of our neighborhood. You will make them feel great about their job! We noticed that many front windows need some TLC. Our recommendation to welcome customers is for front windows and awnings to be washed at least once a month. In addition, a nice & simple window display is always more appealing for new visitors. For assistance, please contact email@example.com. We are all working together to KEEP OCEAN AVENUE CLEAN AND SAFE.
"Open the Gate" - Ingleside Library Gate
We are working on the ribbon-cutting celebration for the new Ingleside Library Gate. More information will be communicated as soon as available.
