Happy New Year Chinatown BIA Members,

We wish everyone a prosperous and cozy new year in 2017!
As we are experiencing more snowfall this year, please be alert of any potential black ice and people of your surroundings on the streets and sidewalks.

The City of Vancouver (CoV) is also requesting to help spread the message for everyone's assistance to improve sidewalk conditions for pedestrians. Should any member have difficulty in obtaining salt, CoV is offering free salt in specified fire halls. It is recommended each member bring their own shovel and bucket to obtain the salt.
