Sixteen community members gathered at the city hall on Saturday, August 20, 2011 to discuss the future of the Historic District. The objective of the meeting was to develop a list of issues that need to be addressed in order to develop the district into a desirable place to live, do business and serve as a tourist destination. It was a very lively and stimulating meeting that helped to forge a group of dedicated citizens working towards the same goals. The group not only voiced their concerns but also indicated a willingness to work to alleviate the issues that are currently preventing the district from achieving its potential. The top ten issues voiced by the group were (in order of priority): no front yard parking, multiple car for sale on front yard; street signage/wayfinding, historic district designation – banners, gateway; start with focal points (Georgetown St. and Extension St.) – one bite at a time; eliminate litter on front porch (fridge, couch, etc.); assist residents with curb appeal (increases value of everyone’s property); street landscaping downtown; landlord oversight of properties (landlord should ensure their property is maintained and presentable); hazardous Sidewalks need to be addressed; establish Entertainment district (state has incentives for businesses); and, City Manager and enforcement tool.
