Downtown Strategies

“The new Entertainment District is two streets and encompasses 6-8 blocks - we started small. In the ordinance, we wrote to allow for changes in the future so that we can expand it and add businesses to it. Currently, it covers three venues and when people purchase a drink within the Entertainment District, they’re allowed to walk around with their drinks while staying in the district. People are walking up and down the streets hanging out. It has helped the businesses that don’t serve alcohol. It’s already creating more foot traffic downtown.”
