Interest, Activity Up

Activity, that is, interest in downtown buildings and development started when the new curb and gutters started to appear. These gave us a glimpse of the shape of the new downtown streets and accompanying streetscape. Starting in August, there was a noticeable uptick in inquiries about buildings that might be available downtown. And, indeed, we’ve seen some of those buildings change hands with new plans to give them new life.

The construction was a trying time, but I hope many, like me, appreciate the outcome. We have a downtown main street that will serve us well for decades. I thank the City and the contractors for getting this project done and having the final outcome be, well, fantastic!
