Some GREAT ideas to continue to revive our downtown.

1.Get out of the office - encourage folks on their lunch breaks to make the effort and the businesses they work for encouraging such excursions. Whether it is for lunch at one of the restaurants, a purchase at one of our retailers or some exercise by taking a quick look to see what the downtown businesses have to offer.

2.Target new retail aimed at downtown residents, workers and the community - Example of a targeted retailer - the community is working on an Organic Food Co-Op. We've been working on this for a couple months now, but a grocer or co-op, no matter what, has to be profitable on day one because their margin is like 3 to 5 percent. You can't go in and be losing money for a month, two months until the market gets there. Important to know what your downtown needs are and your consumer market for a successful retailer especially with all the on-line sales opportunities.

3.Own the arts - Downtown Rawlins has a lot of stuff going on down here with local artists, painters and musicians – art breeds “cultural purpose.” Harnessing artistic energy is amazing, especially the people in the arts and entertainment community.
