Annual General Meeting – Highlights

President Rob Paterson presided over the Cloverdale BIA’s 2015 Annual General Meeting. Members approved a budget for 2015 that included some significant changes. The BIA is shifting resources to several beautification initiatives that include a new Gateway sign (“Welcome to Cloverdale”) for the NW corner of Highway #10 and Highway #15 (at the Brick Yard Station mall). There will also be several landscaping projects along Highway #10 and the Cloverdale By-pass over the next 2 years. Due to a shortfall in sponsorship commitments the BIA regrets to announce the postponements of the 2015 Cloverdale Blueberry Festival and the 2015 Halloween Costume Parade. The BIA also announced that it will increase efforts and resources to recruit more businesses and residents for the Cloverdale Business Improvement Area. The Society will also increase resources for Safety/Security and Crime Prevention initiatives.
