Sept 2 Update

Here’s your latest HDCA news.

Have a great, busy Labor Day Weekend!

  1. Woodin Avenue Landing

At the August 23rd City Council Meeting, HDCA presented the conceptual design for the Woodin Avenue Landing. The Council voted in support of the design, so we’ve moved forward with creating an advisory committee and have officially kicked off the project. The advisory committee is comprised of two business owners (Tom Campbell and Linda Van Lunsen), two community members (Concie Luna and Connie Lorenz) and one downtown building owner (Kirk McGovern). This team will work with Larry Hibbard of Hibbard Architecture and Planning on the project.

  1. Sip & Stroll

Don’t forget!! Sip & Stroll is coming up on September 24th from 3-6pm. Tickets are $35 and can be purchased at HDCA, the Chamber or online at The proceeds will go toward our downtown holiday lighting effort, so encourage friends and family to come support a good cause!

  1. Halloween + Christmas Planning

In the midst of planning Sip & Stroll, our promotions committee has also started making plans for Halloween and Christmas Festivities downtown! Our promotions committee is very busy right now, so I want to take the opportunity to thank those committee members for attending weekly meetings as well as all the additional time they’ve committed to downtown promotions. Thank you Shannon Ellner, Tasheena Christensen, Arturo Zavala and Leah Thompson! This group is brainstorming some new, fun ideas for the upcoming holidays. If you’d like to help plan Halloween or Christmas, let me know!
