Jefferson Street, heart and soul of downtown

Posted: Friday, July 3, 2015

Downtown Jefferson Street is more than just an address. It’s a place where handshakes, smiles and personal greetings still mean something. It’s where we come together to celebrate history and heroes, pass traditions from one generation to the next and build a strong and vibrant community with new perspectives and fresh ideas. It’s where life happens.

Jefferson Street, by name, is the heart and soul of our hometown. Every great community has a street like this, whether it’s named Jefferson Street, Main Street, Mountain Road, Ocean Boulevard or something completely different.

We all appreciate our strong Jefferson Street values, where great stories are made and the location plays a central role in the community. Jefferson Street has strong committed local businesses and economic development taking place, where the community gathers for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Celebrations of history and traditions take place and civic pride along with social and cultural opportunities and events are held.

We, at the Chamber feel these are just a few of the examples and the kinds of attributes available that can make for a better, stronger and vibrant community. Working together, we can accomplish anything.
