Retail Opportunities
In September 2010 the city adopted and began implementation of the Downtown Redevelopment and Implementation Strategy. The plan integrates a pro-business atmosphere with an eagerness to preserve/promote the independent, outdoor loving and community centered spirit that built the west. Since the plan was adopted the core downtown corridor has seen public investments over $2.2 million and private investments totaling over $32 million.

In addition, the city has over 12,000 linear feet of vacant land that fronts US60 and about 70 acres of vacant land centrally located in the core Downtown Corridor. A recent market study identified Retail Leakage of $264 million with the greatest opportunities in Entertainment, Restaurants, Household Furniture, Footwear & Clothing and Electronics.
