Paris has made amazing strides in the past five years. Our downtown has been revitalized with the new Eiffel Tower and Love Lock Fence. Our vacancy rates have improved and we make progress each year. We have a great team of community leaders that are committed to making our downtown an experience. The only obstacle we face is money, like everyone else. If Paris was the winner of this amazing opportunity, we would break the funding up in a few areas. 1st Marketing our community to drive traffic for our main street, 2nd facade upgrades such as awnings, paint and signage, 3rd we would offer hospitality training to help grow the customers with better service and community knowledge. We would also like to plan great murals to drive interest in our area. Paris is a romantic town with a beautiful state park and the highest point in the state just a few miles away.
