DIAMOND RECAP
Bridge Holiday Lights

Every year the Diamond Business Association manages the holiday lights for the I-805 on Imperial Avenue & Market Street as well as the I-94 on Euclid Avenue bridges. For the second year in a row, the Electrical Workers Minority Caucus volunteered to put up the lights to brighten our community during the holiday season.

The Holiday Mixer

In December, the Diamond Business Association cohosted a Holiday Mixer with the College Area Business District. Business members and community leaders were able to network and mingle with each other. The purpose of the mixer was to foster collaboration between business members across the City, starting with two Business Improvement Districts.
