The Elizabethtown Heritage Council is continuing to take steps to further promote the city’s downtown.
Executive Director Stacy Reynolds said part of that is through partnering with Elizabethtown Lifestyle Magazine and Sampley Brothers Productions to market the downtown area.
He said he also has set a meeting for 9 a.m. Monday at the new Elizabethtown Heritage Council office, the former Cobbler’s Cafe building, inviting all downtown businesses. Reynolds said the goal is to map out the 2020 calendar year, do a better job of preparing for downtown events and better market those events.
Reynolds said he also hopes to attract more events downtown with a newly purchased stage with proceeds from BBQ, Blues & Bikes. He said the stage is modular and allows for different configurations.
“It is going to be a much better stage. It will help us with a number of events downtown,” he said, noting the Heritage Council is going to make the stage available to rent for a small fee for organizations who may want to host a downtown event.
Also at Monday’s city council meeting, members approved second readings of two ordinances: the annexations of 7231 S. Wilson Road and 398 and 596 Wise Lane; and amending the official zoning map for property at 245 Ring Road, changing it from General Industrial (I1) to General Commercial (C3) on request from the Elizabethtown Industrial Foundation.
