The more you report safety issues, the more we can justify police resources in our area!
The Safety and Physical Environment Committee oversees the QV BIA environment. Our mission is to educate merchants on expanding safety measures to protect their place of business. We work closely with City officials to ensure maintenance of street infrastructure and the cleanliness of our commercial zone.
