St. John’s Shelter Picnic at the Park Members

“We have a lot of fun while working towards the betterment of the area.”

Committees span the realm from crime and security to planning and development issues. Additionally, several task forces work under committees focusing on both long-term and short-term projects; such as area branding and road improvements. The newest Task Force is Business Watch which works under the direction of the Crime and Code Committee chaired by Nick Sikich of Atlas Disposal in conjunction with Dawn Carlson, Program Manager for The Alliance. This group of business members works toward community awareness and locating resources for use in crime prevention. More fun committees include the Ambassador and Picnic at the Park Committees. Members who enjoy interacting with the business community and promoting the property and business district will aspire to be a part of these active committees. “I encourage members interested in networking and community outreach to become part of these fun and lively committees,” asserts Jamie Szutowicz, Member Relations and Event Manager. “We have a lot of fun while working towards the betterment of the area.” Committee descriptions are available at and the 2014 meeting schedule is available online at or call 916.453.8888 and Jerry, Jamie or Dawn will be able to help guide you to the best committee for your interests.

A&A Concrete Keeps PBID Streets Clean The Power Inn Alliance appreciates the ongoing efforts of A&A Concrete Supply and their commitment to assist in the battle of street and bike lane debris. Thousands of vehicles, both large and small, travel each week throughout the area. Many of these vehicles are loaded to capacity with various materials which escape from their containers. Luckily for all the commuters and businesses operating in the area, A&A Concrete is voluntarily supplementing Sacramento City Street Sweeping Services. Ron Coburn, Site Manager at the A&A Concrete Supply facility on Berry Avenue, takes area pride to another level. According to Coburn “giving back to the community is as much a responsibility as a need to keep neighbors safe and the area looking good.” Coburn is a staunch supporter of The Alliance mission and a member of both the Planning and Business Development and Crime and Code committees. A&A Ready Mixed Concrete, Inc. was created in 1949 in Gardena, CA. The company grew steadily and opened the Sacramento location in 2008, as one of 21 locations throughout Northern and Southern California. And today, A&A Concrete has become the largestfamily-owned supplier of ready mixed concrete in the state.
