Community can share opinions about downtown Salisbury tonight

SALISBURY — The public will be able to give their opinions about downtown Salisbury at an open house tonight.

Downtown Salisbury Inc. is sponsoring the “Open House Series on Public Improvements” for downtown, the first of three events.

Citizens can drop in anytime between 5 and 7 p.m. on the first floor of the Gateway Building at 204 E. Innes St.

New Sarum Brewery and Downtown Salisbury Inc. are supplying the reception and beverages.

Downtown Salisbury Inc. is hosting the open house to figure out what public improvements can help the downtown area thrive.

The issues that will be considered at tonight’s open house will include how DSI can make sure downtown Salisbury supports current businesses and attract new ones and how to get more people to live in the downtown area.

Community members, including residents and business people, will be able to look at open house boards, talk to staff and write down comments.

For more information, contact Sheila Ezzo at 704-637-7814.
