COVID-19 Support for Downtown Businesses
Restrictions from the ongoing coronavirus epidemic are hurting local businesses, especially in Downtown with a high concentration of restaurants and nightlife establishments. We are working as fast as we can to compile resources for business operators and their employees and customers so that we can help lessen the economic effect of the virus on our community.

Downtown’s central location, built-in infrastructure, and its role as the cultural and business center of the region has led to significant development activity in recent years, including more than 100 residential units currently under construction.
