Downtown Revitalization Plan Suggests Many Improvements

A revitalization plan being spearheaded by Downtown Bloomsburg Inc. suggests a number of improvements to the downtown commercial district. Ideas include increasing the amount of green space, building improvements, incentive programs for businesses, and a roundabout in front of Town Hall. The phase 2 report of the 3-phase plan was presented last Thursday evening at the Greenly Center. Duane Greenly, benefactor of the Greenly Center, Mayor Sandy Davis, and Chamber President Fred Gaffney expressed support for the initiative.

The presentation and a list of major supporters to date is available on DBI’s website at www.visitbloomsburg.org. The DBI Board would like to move forward with phase 3 immediately upon securing funding.
