Reopening Update

A COLLABORATION FOR RE-OPENING

Venice MainStreet and the Venice Area Chamber of Commerce have collaborated to form the Reopening Task Force to aid businesses in their resumption of business activities during the COVID-19 crisis. The committee is comprised of board members and business leaders from both organizations.

A recent tool completed by the committee and provided to businesses is an information graphic (see above) announcing a business’ plan to abide by safety standards and prioritize the health of staff and customers. We invite the public to look for these notices throughout Venice.

All businesses are invited to post this tool. If a business is in need of this notice, we encourage them to pick one up at the Venice MainStreet office or the Chamber of Commerce. Please look for a list of participating businesses posted soon in the Venice Gondolier .

I'm Sweet Caroline ! If you're looking for a fun, independent cat I'm your gal. It may take me a while to feel comfortable because I'm easily startled. I enjoy getting attention from the ones I know but I like to come on my own.
Hi, my name is Dixie ! I love people of all ages, know some basic commands, and I'm house trained! I'm full grown and weigh 65 lbs. Going for car rides, playing fetch in the yard and just being with my loved ones makes me happy.
