All downtown business owners are welcome. We are moving the meeting to City Hall and we’ll meet in the Council chambers on the 3rd floor because we have had so many businesses sign up. We will have coffee and sweet treats. If you haven’t RSVP’d already, please do it now! Please RSVP to let us know you’re coming; email Heather. We will host these meetings quarterly and will rotate times to accommodate the variety of work schedules we all have. If you can’t make this one, maybe you can make the next!
