Support our Community! (Updated Oct 5th)

We are fortunate to have such a supportive downtown with over 20,000 people who work here on a daily basis. In light of COVID-19, many businesses have made the wise decision to have their employees work remotely.

Our hospitality and retail businesses rely on these employees to buy their coffee, lunches, treats and run errands.

Many of our hospitality and retail businesses have had to make the difficult decision to temporarily close.  Many have adapted to provide take out and have adjusted their restaurants for the various stages.
