The Lark Street BID is teaming up with Central BID to get the freshman from Universities in the Albany area to be more engaged with the businesses along Central Avenue. So this Saturday October 22, 2011 we are welcoming all incoming freshmen to join us on a tour through Central Avenue, the Lark Street, and Downtown Districts. The idea behind doing so is to develop new potentially loyal customers to these businesses and to show the student that it is within their reach. Were hoping that it will bring upward 2000 plus students to the area. We want the students to get involved with the outside community beyond the Universities. Broaden their horizon and show then what they are missing out on. While on the tour they have the opportunity to look at the menus and take them back with them as well as, receive coupon or flyer about the businesses. By doing this were hoping that it will bring more revenue to the Albany BID Districts and bring Central Avenue, Lark Street, and Downtown back to life and make it become the main streets in Albany.
