Downtown renovation plans move ahead
The Friends of Downtown committee hosted a luncheon meeting yesterday to allow
downtown business owners to meet with the architect retained by Cleveland's Economic
"The vision of the city's planning committee is to improve the attractiveness
of downtown," said J. Andrew Rice. "The purpose of today's meeting
is to begin to talk with downtown business owners about what they'd like to do
with their buildings."
Joiner said the goal was to get business owners to think about their own businesses,
and how they could improve the appearance of their structures.
Rice echoed Joiner's comment that "the main thing we're doing is cleaning
up," but added that "individual expression (in building appearances
and facades) is what will give the downtown area character."
The group was strongly encouraged to "start talking" about the renovation
project - to other business owners and to city council members.
