Sprucing up Atlantic City for tourism purposes
February 3, 2012 by Mark
The Casino Reinvestment Development Authority is waiting on approval for a plan that will make Atlantic City cleaner, safer and more inviting. This is a worthwhile endeavor as the city is currently the nation’s second most popular gambling destination. Visitors to the city come from nearby New Jersey suburbs such as East Brunswick as well as from other states.
If approved, the new tourism district will consist of casinos and shopping areas. The plan the agency is put in for consideration is expected to be approved on February the 1st. Residents of this area will be pleased to learn that the plan addresses quality of life issues for both residents and visitors. It also calls for development in some areas, removal of anti-crime shutters, increased sanitation and the sprucing up of store facades.
Workers have already started cleaning up the area. The trash is being sucked up from the gutters and some streets look cleaner than they have been in the past few years. The city is also planting flowers and erecting signs which giving better directions to visitors. Some shopping centers have also expanded its parking to accommodate shoppers.
Overall, this is very good news for the print industry. If more people visit Atlantic city, more printing services will be required. This is because businesses will be spending more money on promotional items such as flyers and brochures. As the gambling industry is heavily regulated many businesses will need to print out informative brochures for their staff.
