Future Plans for Downtown Denison Discussed at "Visioning Meeting"


DENISON, TX--- Business is booming in downtown Denison. In less than a year, more than a dozen shops have opened up on the city's historical Main Street, but many people don't want the growth to stop there.

Tonight, the next stage of development was discussed at the "2014 Downtown Denison Visioning Meeting".

The meeting was held at The Denison Senior Citizen Center and started at 6 p.m. During the meeting, Certified Main Street Manager Julie Glover spoke to more than 100 city residents about recent accomplishments and future changes coming to Main Street. 

After that, residents were asked to voice what they'd like to see in the coming years. Denison Main Street Director Donna Dow said their ideas are important to this long-range planning process for the downtown area. Dow said buy-in to ideas presented will be determined by allowing participants to vote on items they feel should be assigned highest priority.

A summary of tonight's meeting will be reviewed at the next quarterly meeting of the leadership of downtown stakeholders organizations. The stakeholders include Downtown Denison Inc., Denison Arts Council, Chamber of Commerce, Denison Development Alliance, and Denison Main Street.
