Sept 9th Update

Hope everybody had a chance to decompress from the summer madness a little this week! Here are your updates…

1) In the coming weeks, you’ll be receiving information about our plans for holiday lighting this year! We’re excited to be adding some additional lighting downtown and we hope all the downtown businesses will join in so no building goes unlit! We can help with questions on buying and hanging your own lights or we can provide names of people you can pay to install your lights. Expect more info on that to be delivered to your business in the next week or two!

2) HDCA will start hosting quarterly socials for our downtown businesses. This is an opportunity to get everybody together to talk about what’s coming up downtown and what people want to see happening downtown. The first one will be in early October. Mayor Cooney will be joining us to present the proposed design for the old bridge and will be looking for feedback. We’ll also talk about holiday lighting, Small Town Christmas and the Woodin Avenue Landing! It’s going to be a big one – watch next week’s update for the day, time and location!

3) Finally, Small Town Christmas planning is underway! We’ve got a rough outline of all we’d like to do in the month of December, and we’re excited about some great changes we’ll be making. If you’d like to give participate in planning, please join our promotions committee. We meet on Fridays at 9am in my office.
