Goals and Initiatives
Dewey Business Partnership takes pride in Dewey Beach. Of our initiatives, one is to support the town in its beautification efforts through Litter clean-up. Currently the town has budgeted 8 street sweepings for the YEAR! They take place on Sunday mornings over the summer. DBP will have American Hardscapes sweep the Main Highway and Bayard Avenue every Monday morning for the remainder of the season and every summer weekend next year so that the town will be swept regularly over the summer season. The Street Sweeper will proudly display the DBP logo. In addition, for the remainder of this season and for the future, we will organize litter pick-up on every side street as many days a week as possible. This group will also display our logo to show our support and presence in the community.
Other initiatives include donations to the town for the purchase of a LED town sign as well as continued support for extra police on Memorial Day and holiday weekends among other initiatives that will contribute to the greater good of Dewey Beach.
Acvtivities and Fundraising
