Downtown revitalization presented to council

Downtown plan for Madison Street.

On Wednesday, March 26, Poggemeyer Design Group presented their renderings for the revitalization of downtown Port Clinton. Poggemeyer has met with council two times prior and spoke with citizens at those meetings to get their ideas of what they would like to see in the downtown area. With these latest renderings that have been presented, Poggemeyer has taken design, organization, promotion, and economic structuring into consideration. This particular meeting was focused on design.

Even though the meeting focused on design, Lauren Falcone and Greg Telecky, representatives from Poggemeyer, gave a brief finding of the market study of the area done by Boulevard Strategy out of Columbus. The market study found that manufacturing, medical, service, and food were the growing areas of industry in the area; the highest being food service. Poggemeyer also found that the office market is shrinking, but the medical industry of the area is growing.

“People are coming to the community,” said Falcone, “we just need to get them to stay here.”
