A MESSAGE FROM 

TOM QUINN, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

As the summer draws to a close COVID-19 remains a national issue impacting every aspect of our lives.  Alameda Connects and ACBID continue to work on measures to support our community, non-profits and business owners.  So far this year we’ve launched three grants programs to help small businesses with another set to launch this fall. 
 
Here’s an update on what were doing.  This past week we concluded our Alameda Ramblin’ Music Showcase series celebrating different genres of music with local bands.  Each show was sold out and over $1500 raised for local charities.  Thanks to our partners at Belmar for use of the plaza and support staff and the Kiwanis Club for handling beverage sales. 
 
In September we returned to our in person monthly community meetings with precautions pursuant to Jeffco Health Department rules.  Many thanks to Colorado Christian University for hosting the meeting!  In October we plan to resume meeting at West Metro Fire Headquarters.  For the foreseeable future tickets will be required with attendance limited.  Get your tickets early.   
 
Our street improvements continue to move forward as planned.  In the coming weeks a new mural will be placed on the east facing wall of the Hyatt House in Belmar.  In addition, we will install a new shade structure, benches and a bike repair station on the concrete pad at Chase Street and the Alameda Frontage Road.  More is in the works too in the coming months so stay tuned for more announcements.
