WATSONVILLE — The Watsonville City Council will consider appointing two councilmembers to the Watsonville Downtown Vision Working Group, a body of business and property owners that seek solutions to revitalize a struggling area of the city.
According to a report by Jan Davison, redevelopment and housing director, and Kurt Overmeyer, economic development manager, city staff have met with downtown property owners and business owners to form a small group. The group will go through what is called a "visioning process" to determine feasible steps that the downtown area must take to become successful.
This process includes a series of five workshops, where the participants will discuss successful downtowns and visit another city to see how its downtown is flourishing.
