The purpose of the project is to develop a community-driven strategy to be used to guide the physical and economic development of our downtown. Ultimately, we will create a document that:

  • Sets forth our goals for the downtown.
  • Includes recommendations for achieving our goals.
  • Includes an implementation action plan for getting things done.

Downtowns are one of the few places in communities where housing, restaurants, shops, offices, education, community gathering spaces, and cultural, social and civic activities come together. Therefore, downtowns play a key role in a community’s success. A strong, vibrant and prosperous downtown can be the most productive place in a town and serve as a major economic driver.

The focus area for the project is shown on the map below…

The project will begin in February of 2019 and is expected to wrap up this summer (2019). See the Project Timeline page for more information.
