Core downtown areas that function as gathering spaces

Livingston County’s downtowns serve as the hearts of their communities and the core of civic life.

Our downtowns are home to restaurants and retail shops; they serve as gathering places; and they host a variety of events and festivals. Each downtown area has its own identity and particular strengths.

A young, talented workforce is drawn to downtown areas. The kind of workers we need to increase and sustain prosperity in Livingston
County want what successful downtowns offer: walkability, restaurants, eclectic retail, entertainment options, and gathering places.
