Event held in January. A gathering of community members to provoke new ideas and inspire actionable results. Goal is to stimulate new initiatives and events, create new connections and collaborations, and establish a community of people who have the desire to achieve great things for our community's core.


Community Improvement District
The CID, along with the Downtown Conference Center, were identified as the "big" projects the Association should pursue.

The CID will be the focus for the Association for 2015.

Details on the CID here: https://www.haikudeck.com/downtown-jcmo---cid-presentation-business-present...

Other priorities/ideas

  • Farmers' Market
  • Redevelopment
  • Non Bar Space for Evenings
  • Branding
  • Encouraging Residential Development
The Brainstorming Event and Online Survey also highlighted a number of other areas that our community felt should be top priorities for Downtown. While Downtown considers the Farmers' Market, Redevelopment, Branding and Encouraging Residential Development ongoing project, the "new idea" people seemed most interested in was the development of a non bar space for evenings.
