2011 annual dinner meeting presentation

  1. 1. Downtown Hutchinson is the center for community events, unique shops and services, and casual and upscale dining and entertainment. Public investment has redeveloped the streetscape from Seventh Avenue south to Carey Park, and public green spaces feature a river walk, amphitheater, water spray park and many other beautiful park areas. Private investment, aided by grants and financing programs, has restored the historic facades of downtown Main Street buildings. The landmark Wiley building has been redeveloped and restored to use. Downtown living is popular with a mix of affordable and market-rate housing, including loft apartments. The area is home to working artists, musicians, dancers, and unique service and retail operations that have joined longtime service, retail and antique store businesses. Entrepreneurs are encouraged to locate in the downtown area to develop new specialty retail and service operations to serve the expanding downtown customer base. Downtown venues feature local and nationally known artists. People stroll along well-lit sidewalks alive with residents and visitors, young and old, enjoying public art, outdoor dining, open businesses and the many events staged downtown. Walking and biking paths make downtown easily accessible from all areas of the community.
