Alderman Russell W. Stamper, II encourages citizens to take advantage of these volunteer opportunities. “Volunteers are needed in multiple capacities to help in BID 39’s endeavors, and this is a great opportunity to assist the Center Street Marketplace while working to improve the community,” Alderman Stamper said.

Common Council President Michael J. Murphy, whose 10th Aldermanic District also includes a portion of BID 39, said community volunteers and assistance can “make a significant difference” in giving BID 39 strong ties to the community. “The BID 39 board is new and is poised to do some outstanding work along Center Street, and I ask citizens to strongly consider being a part of this dynamic atmosphere by volunteering their time and talents,” he said.

Alderman Willie C. Wade, whose 7th Aldermanic District includes a portion of BID 39, energetically echoed the sentiments of his colleagues: “The health of any commercial area is determined by the support and relationships it has with the surrounding neighborhoods and people. Please come out to the community kick-off event on Saturday and see what opportunities exist, and also see what positive difference you can make.”
