The Downtown Development Commission will conduct a special meeting at 4 p.m. Thursday, June 5, in the McNease Convention Center to discuss and consider the next steps to executing the strategies outlined in a master plan for continuing the revitalization of downtown San Angelo.
Downtown stakeholders and other interested parties are encouraged to attend the public meeting at the Convention Center, 501 Rio Concho Drive.
The timing is interesting in light of City Council giving Catalyst Urban Development 180 days to generate interest in three city properties. That happened in December 2013.
New City Councilwoman Elizabeth Grindstaff characterizes her leadership as development oriented. She left the city's employ in 2012, the same year a different City Council approved engaging Catalyst for downtown development.
It will be interesting to see what comes back to City Council and any projected consulting fees for taking the next step.
