“This award validates our efforts to leverage the downtown streetscape improvements with businesses that strengthen the city’s core,” said Downtown Manager Courtney Orr. “Even in the current economy, we’re beginning to see results as businesses renew their interest in the area and new restaurants open. We know we’re doing something right.”
