Downtown Distinction Awards

In March 2017, the Downtown Maintenance Committee launched its ‘We Live It: Downtown Distinction’ campaign, awarding downtown business that exhibit outstanding efforts to maintain and beautify their exterior property.  Each month, for a total of twelve months, a different business will be awarded from a rotating business type category.   At the end of the twelve months, a social media campaign will be utilized to solicit the public to vote on their favorite business.  The overall winner will be presented with the 2017-2018 Downtown Distinction Business ‘People’s Choice’ Award.
