As noted earlier on another thread, John Kevranian is leaving the B'way BID and Ross Bruce is stepping back in on an interim basis. Here is the Daily Journal article describing the changes
“What I’m doing here every day as a business owner I can do at a county or city level as a full-time job helping our community improve,” said Kevranian, who has operated his candy store at 1241 Broadway for more than two decades.
In stepping away from leading the organization designed to allocate fees collected from Broadway business owners to fund improvements to the shopping district, Kevranian, 49, said he is interested in taking a position in the city or county ranks where he can share his expertise as a problem solver honed through helping other burgeoning merchants launch their businesses.
I'm not sure I agree with this bit though
Looking ahead, Kevranian said there are many more challenges for his successor, such as improving street lighting and attracting larger retailers, said Kevranian. “We need some recognized names for Broadway,” he said.
I'm on Broadway at least three times a week and one of the things that draws me in is the relative lack of "recognized names". It's quaint like 25th Ave in San Mateo. It's also very easy to park which is incongruent with larger, better recognized retailers. Let's leave well enough alone.
