The Downtown 2040 Steering Committee and planning team are ready to share some strategies for the future, and we need the community’s input!
We’ll be hosting a series of pop-up events - from happy hour to coffee hour, South Downtown to North Downtown and Court Square in between! All are welcome to stop by to learn about Downtown past and present and weigh in on ideas for future growth, change, and preservation.
To participate in an in-person Dream Downtown event, please mark your calendar, and plan to join us:
For Happy Hour: Friday, July 23 from 3:30pm-8:00pm in the roundabout at Pale Fire Brewing (with live music, beer for purchase, and free Branch’s Soft Serve for the first 100 people)
Outside Magpie Diner: Saturday, July 24 from 8:30am-1:00pm
For Community Coffee Hour following Sunday services: Sunday, July 25 after church from 10:00am-2:00pm at Court Square on the east side of the Court House (with coffee from Black Sheep and juice from Friendly City Food Co-Op)
Many thanks to Sentara Health for sponsoring these events in support of Downtown’s future!
If you can't make it or prefer to engage online, check back for a link to the interactive virtual version of the Dream Downtown events to be published on July 23!
Please stay tuned for updates as the planning process moves forward and other opportunities to get involved arise!
