With all of the recent tragedies and unexplained violence across our country, the world and in our communities, I want to focus on a bright spot that is making a huge positive impact…the revitalization of Downtown Florence.
The area was once filled with crime and dilapidated buildings. Now it is once again becoming the heartbeat of the city and winning awards for the progress.
Plans were just announced for another hotel to be built after the one that is there now is at capacity most nights.
Restaurants and new businesses along with apartments and condos are bringing those old buildings back to life in a very charming and appealing way. And… hundreds of jobs have been created as well.
Consider This: This is leadership. This is collaboration. This is success. Florence residents, leaders and businesses owners have much to be proud of. And, to think…this is just the beginning
