Imagine catching the latest independent film at the Yucca Theatre before walking a few blocks to shop and grabbing dinner on a typical Friday night.
If the goals of several Vision 2020 committees are realized in the coming decade, that’s what downtown Midlanders can expect.
Those initiatives, along with about 49 others, will be presented Tuesday during City Council’s meeting. From there, it will be up to locals to put the goals into action.
“It provides us — it has every decade — (with a) kind of a road map to dream big dreams, and then make them happen,” said Charlie Spence, co-chairman of the Vision 2020 committee and former Reporter-Telegram publisher.
