The City of Hillsboro would like to invite all downtown business owners and residents interested in downtown revitalization to a Connect Communities Kickoff Meeting at City Hall on Prairie Ave. Tuesday, March 3 at 5 p.m.
Representatives from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) will be present to discuss ongoing downtown revitalization projects and strategies.
“This will be a great opportunity for individuals with a stake in the downtown to come together and work with the city and WEDC to promote revitalization in our downtown commercial district,” said Adam Sonntag, City Administrator.
The meeting will consist of a presentation by the WEDC and a strategic planning session.
In 2014, the City was one of 21 communities chosen by the WEDC to participate in the Connect Communities program. According to the WEDC, the Connect Communities program helps local leaders leverage the unique assets of their downtowns and commercial districts, providing access to resources and networking opportunities to local leaders interested in starting a district revitalization effort.
