Ad Hoc Downtown Advisory Committee
Downtown Advisory Committee
The Ad Hoc Downtown Advisory Committee has been established to create a collaborative process that enhances the safety of our City through positive engagement with the community. The associated stakeholders are our citizens, businesses, government, and the visitors to our community. The city of Saratoga Springs is a community that prioritizes safety, attracts visitors, and recognizes the significance of tourism to economic viability. It is imperative that there is collaboration based on relationships to ensure safety in our community.
The Downtown Advisory Committee is an ad hoc committee of volunteers who are representative of businesses, government, and community leaders in Saratoga Springs.
The committee has established subcommittees to address the following areas: data collection, safety, training, operational communications, and external communications.
The committee intends to meet bi-weekly. The next meeting is February 15, 2023.
