Downtown Revitalizations..

Let’s face it most of our major city downtown areas fall into disrepair due to ever tightening budgets. Many try to revitalize their city centers and some are successful. One of those cities is Louisville KY. It has been a while since I was there but their “Fourth Street – Live” was quite a hopping place even in the middle of the week. They deserve my 5star rating for their efforts. It is a neat place to spend an evening.

  1. It’s not exactly a “major city,” but Kalamazoo, Michigan, near us has a long history of bouncing back from economic setbacks. Major revitalization is cranking up once again with help from a $60 million dollar gift by anonymous philanthropists to cut property taxes and fund an endowment to back improvement projects. Like Louisville, Kazoo has robust night life nowadays.


    • Thanks Gabby for the info. I am going to be heading up that way this spring. Maybe I will spend a day there. It’s nice to see cities of all sizes making a comeback. Anonymous philanthropists, those are the best kind….
