Setting the Stage
Signage, trash cans, street lights. Standards of the urban streetscape but key components of how inviting an area is to visitors.
During the last few years
the Special Business District has funded street lighting, trash cans
and new signage to better identify parking and shopping areas.
Banners enhance the downtown area and recently, the area was further enhanced with designs by Firecracker Press for the formerly drab electrical boxes found throughout the district.
History plays a role, too and visitors are invited to take a walk down memory lane and visit the Route 66 tribute and memorial plaques
Events are also an important part of what the Special Business District does. Let Them Eat Art
, Small Business Saturday, The Sweet Tooth Tour, The Coffee Crawl and Stringfest bring thousands of people to the area.
