Promoting The Janesville Mile - Class of 2009-10 LDA Collaborative Project Presentation

  1. 1.  Celeste Gilmore – Alliant Energy  Jennifer Johns – UW Rock County  Duane Jorgenson – City of Janesville  Eric Kuznacic – SWWDB  Kyle Padfield – Fairbanks Morse
  2. 2. The Janesville Mile is based on the idea that there is a great density of things to see, do and experience in a “mile-ish” stretch of Janesville from Rotary Botanical Gardens to the Armory Dinner Theater. It is not only a great concept, it is absolutely true.
  3. 3. When it comes to the downtown, it is important to stop looking at the trees and begin to concentrate on the forest. Look at Downtown Janesville and the central city as one district and you will see that on any given night, there could be a concert at JPAC, a hockey game at the Ice Arena, and live music at Time Out, SpeakEasy or at the Armory.
  4. 4. The concept of the Janesville Mile offers you the ability to experience all that Downtown Janesville has to offer in a way that is easy, understandable and FUN !
