ASSESSMENT & COMMUNITY VISIONING

The important first steps in any revitalization effort, the Downtown, or Main Street Assessment consists of a thorough review of the existing issues, conditions, and current efforts in the downtown. This Assessment will serve as a vital, preliminary analysis, of the issues, assets, needs and opportunities that currently exist, as well as the preliminary recommendations for next steps that will be required for the project area. Following this Assessment, a critical component of any revitalization effort is the development of a Community-based vision. In order to openly discuss and help develop a consensus for the community's preferred future vision of their downtown commercial and civic district.
