To bring economic growth and revitalization to downtown while preserving our history.

The four point approach

Design Enhancing the physical appearance of the commercial district by rehabilitating historic buildings, encouraging supportive new construction.

Organization Building consensus and cooperation among the many groups and individuals who have a role in the revitalization process.

Promotion Marketing the traditional commercial district’s assets to customers, potential investors, new businesses, local citizens and visitors.

Economic Vitality Strengthening the district’s existing economic base while finding ways to expand it to meet new opportunities — and challenges from outlying development.
