As part of its 62nd Annual Conference and Tradeshow in Atlanta this week, the International Downtown Association recognized the Capitol Hill BID with a Merit Award for its work and initiatives related to contracting its Ready, Willing & Working Clean Team Services to other BIDs and Main Streets.
The program, which has experienced tremendous growth since its inception in 2008, was among nine qualified entries in the category of Downtown Leadership and Management. This category features comprehensive and unique organizational approaches, projects, or programs that improved the effectiveness of downtown management organizations.
