Morristown, TN has a very unique downtown area. It is home to the Skymart, an overhead sidewalk system that is the only such structure in the US. Since 2009, Crossroads Downtown Partnership has been promoting downtown Morristown and its businesses while making the area more visually attractive, building economic strength, and creating a place to be. Since that time, over $2 million has been invested with both public and private funds. This funding includes matching Facade Grants available to building & business owners for exterior improvements. The organization, in 2019, also began offering a matching interior improvement grant to defray the cost of bringing the property into current code compliance, of which one new business benefited. Proceeds from this contest would allow the organization to award several grant projects in 2020.
