I Believe in Downtown!
Downtown is not only a place, but a sense of place - a place where ideas and people come together and where local businesses thrive to create a unique destination for visitors, residents and professionals. As a business or an individual, we ask that you make a commitment to support downtown each week by visiting our businesses, shopping, dining or attending a downtown event.
That could be breakfast at a local coffee shop, business cards at a local printer or purchasing a special anniversary gift at a local boutique. The economic impact you make is significant.
Inspired by projects in other downtowns across the country such as the 3/50 Project, "I Believe in Downtown" gives you the opportunity to support a big picture commitment.

Check out these stats, reported from the 3/50 Project
- 3: What three independently owned businesses would you miss if they disappeared? Stop in. Say hello. Pick up something that brings a smile. Your purchases are what keeps those businesses around.
- 50: If half the employed population spent $50 a month in locally owned independent businesses, it would generate more than $42.6 billion in revenue.
- 68: For every $100 spent in locally owned independent stores, $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll and other expenditures.
