Victoria McDowall from Fred's Sandwiches and The Ram says they are stoked to be a part of the Cuba Street Clean-Up.
“We love the precinct and we want it to have the respect it deserves. The smallest act of picking up litter translates towards this pride. The businesses and people in this area are what makes Cuba and its surrounds such an attraction. It's our community!”
Council’s Central City Manager Prak Sritharan’s role is to make it easier for businesses and other key central city stakeholders to engage with the Council, and to support Council to engage with businesses on the city’s priorities.
“We’re working with the community to find out what matters to them, and cleanliness continues to be a key priority for local businesses and residents.
“This is a great opportunity to connect with our inner-city community to ensure our streets sparkle for the Christmas season!”
