Twin Cities Development meets to discuss downtown Gering

Posted: Updated:

Downtown Gering could be getting a facelift thanks to revitalization efforts from Twin Cities Development.

Marketing and Research Manager Rick Willis met with business owners and people of Gering last night to discuss some of the best ways to spruce up downtown.  

Willis says Gering has a few untapped resources that they need to expand on to make downtown a more hospitable place.  

He says he is encouraged by the participation in yesterday's meeting.   Ideas from the meeting will go into a pitch in another effort at a $30,000 grant.

"Essentially what we want to do tonight is find one direction the merchants in Gering want to go, we're hoping that they will decide on a strategy and how that strategy would impact Gering," says Willis. 

Willis says that while planning is still being done, another grant would go a long way to make this project a reality.
