Greater Kokomo Economic Development Alliance, City of Kokomo
Kokomo was having limited success renovating some of its historic building facades and updating their streetscapes, but they were not experiencing the level of business and housing investment they sought.
Utilizing consensus building conversations with diverse organizations and focus groups, and our market based approach of identifying opportunities to attract new customers and invesments, DCI defined the development areas and priority initiatives to be undertaken.
Six priority initiatives were identified including; a hotel and convention center, relocation of a nuseum, new residential housing development, upper floor rehabilitation, downtown business and event coordination and a marketing and wayfinding program.
Follow-up implementation programming on these initiatives are underway.
