The Economic Restructuring Committee is back after a holiday break! Last week Leanne, Terry, and I were fortunate enough to attend the California Main Street Alliance Conference in Oceanside, CA. It was an inspiring week and we came back with a huge “to do” list! Some projects big and some projects small - Our priority will continue to be to attracting new businesses. We are currently working to develop new business incentives that the City of Martinez will hopefully adopt. Smaller projects include a new Downtown Martinez app (coming soon!), hosting another available property tour on April 24th, expanding our Sunday Farmer’s Market and Friday’s on the Main, and hosting a variety of educational workshops called “Business Boosters” designed to continue to strengthen our existing businesses.
Here's an example of how our new app will look:
Oceanside is a beautiful town and great example of a successful Main Street! They host a market every Thursday night with over 190 vendors!
And of course we had a little fun while we were there!
