Why is downtown important?

Missouri’s downtowns are the most visible indicator of a community’s pride as it is the area that best showcases the community’s unique identity through its history and culture. Downtown is either an asset or a liability in the effort to recruit new residents, new businesses and industries, retirees, tourists and others to your community and to keep those you already have. Quality of life is what separates success from decline.
