Letter: A cleaner downtown
August 22, 2013, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,

I was pleased to read Bill Silverfarb’s article “San Mateo’s Central Park faces redesign,” in the Aug. 15 edition of the Daily Journal.

If only the Downtown Association would invest in cleaning the sidewalks downtown, it would be money well spent.

To see how busy the evenings are with full parking lots and people enjoying the many restaurants in the area is a wonderful thing to see.

In the past there was a real pride in the store occupants keeping their store fronts clean and presentable. Now, it is embarrassing to see the sidewalks covered with spilled liquids, black grease marks, etc.

I have been told that each business is assessed a cleaning fee. This is not always apparent. A steam cleaning on a regular basis would be a real improvement.

As a resident of San Mateo for more than 50 years, I have always had great pride in the many accomplishments of the City of San Mateo.

A cleaner downtown would be a great improvement for the residents and guests.
