RBDBA Continued from page 46 whole area and I think we can work together to create a positive image - they have things we don't offer and vice versa - so it's a package which can attract people we want." Clink explained that the four committees will interact to foster a rejuvenation of downtown Re- hoboth Beach. The committees include the Clean Sweep Commit- tee, chaired by Gene Nelson and Greg McDermott, "which will be concerned with prettying up the downtown so we can take pride and make it as enticing and attrac- tive as possible." The Right Direction Commit- tee, chaired by Alan Garey, "will work to get out the word and bring people downtown, working with the outlets, for instance," shesaid, while the Remember the Member Committee, chaired by Steve Elkins and Jennifer Zerby, will be focusing on "listening to member needs and getting them to work together. We need to create unity so that the everyone can work to- gether smoothly," Clink noted. The Realtors Commercial In- vestment Committee, chaired by Calvin Stahl and Pat Kelley, "will, as the other committees get up and running, be able to present a nice, tidy package, so that the Realtors can physically go out and lure businesses to Rehoboth," she added. As there have been recent con- cerns that present effort to get a Main Street program up and run- ning may overlap with RBDBA goals, Clink assured "we are not trying to compete with anyone or take their glory away. We are con- centrating on day-to-day progress for our businesses and our goals tie in with Main Street and Re- hoboth's proposed Long Range Plan. You start with clusters working toward similar goals and it spreads, so everyone's effort should flow more smoothly." Stressing the need for city and homeowner support, Clink said "the city appreciates the efforts we're making and the homeown- CAPE , Friday, February 3 - February 9, 1995.47 ers need to feel proud of their business district and help in the effort by shopping here. In the long run, beautification and brin- ing in businesses we feel comple- ment the tone will raise their prop- erty values as well. This will all make Rehoboth more desirable in every way. One thing we must keep in mind is that we need the tourists and must appreciate them - but we want them to respect what we have as well." Clink hopes others, and not only those linked to the downtown business district, will come for- ward to work on the committees and offer their insight.
