DOWNTOWN REVITALIZATION

A City’s downtown is the heart of the community. Historically this is where generations came for parades and events, and it was/is a commercial hub. Examples: • City has purchased three downtown buildings to rehabilitate for retail use. • We are undergoing a three-year renovation of sidewalks and lighting.

QUALITY OF LIFE/AESTHETICS/AMENITIES

Cities that offer a variety of features and opportunities in these areas will be favored by young families and the important labor segment (persons 25-65 in age) moving to their community. • Arts Council established, elected board, scheduling events for 2019 • New park and walking trail installed.
