Downtown Akron continues to receive its share of facelifts, from road repair to other cosmetic changes. Basically, if one can stomach the orange barrels and detours for a bit, downtown will look much different.
Dan Horrigan, the mayor of Akron, joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to give an overview on the projects. Horrigan points to the major project, which is Main Street in downtown, where, as of this post, much of it is closed off. He believes this redevelopment will have a big impact on attracting more residents and businesses to the city in the future.
The mayor also touched on the added bike lanes and the Innerbelt area, as well as the sewer project, Rolling Acres land, and the early voting topic.
