Uptown Saint John is happy to celebrate a donation of $483.50 to the Harbour Lights Campaign. This money was collected from our ‘Meter For Change’ parking meter on Germain Street. Thanks to everyone who slipped in a bit of change over the past few months – it all adds up to an impressive amount – going to an important cause. A big thank you also goes to the Saint John Parking Commission for partnering with us on this on-going project.
Uptown Saint John Business Inc, the Business Improvement Association has placed eight Salt/Sand boxes throughout the BIA as a pilot project. There will be no cost to the uptown membership for the sand/salt who will also receive a hand scoop for ease of use. This is a joint effort with the sidewalk plow operators to help keep the ice manageable during the upcoming winter season.
Below is a list with the locations of the salt/sand boxes. These sites are approved by the City of Saint John and we look forward to expanding after this initial pilot project.
Location of bins:
Charlotte Street – In front of Keirsteads Flowers Shop
Corner of Princess and Germain St – In front of the Union Club
Coroner of Princess and Canterbury – In front of Big Tide Brewing
Corner of Princess and Prince William – In from of Cask & Kettle Irish Pub
Prince William Street – In front of Java Moose
