Published: 08/12/2010
Downtown Alliance Blog, by Jason Mathis - More than 20 storefront businesses have opened in the Central Business District since January 2010, proof that the downtown community is continuing to progress and evolve as a more dynamic urban center.

"The influx of new businesses in 2010 puts us on track to hit about the same number as last year," said Jason Mathis, executive director of the Downtown Alliance.
