Mesquite, TX – October 5, 2020 – Today, Downtown Mesquite announced the launch of www.DowntownMesquiteTX.com to feature businesses, events and history, and information aimed at entrepreneurs and property owners.
“We’re so excited about the site,” said Downtown Development Advisory Board Chairman Brad Brandt. “This is one more avenue through which we can spread the word about what’s happening, how we work as a development program, and what’s to come,” Brandt said, adding that volunteers on the advisory board assisted with the vision for the site, review and content creation.
The site www.DowntownMesquiteTX.com offers opportunities to existing businesses, visitors and investors. All downtown business owners now have the opportunity to support the active business directory by uploading new information on their operations. Visitors can create an itinerary of businesses to visit and special events to add to their calendar. Those interested in developing a business or property can access best practices on opening a business to rehabilitating an older building, as well as details on available grant funds for rehabilitation projects.
The launch of this new website is another achievement for Downtown Mesquite in 2020. In June, it earned a designation as a Nationally Accredited Main Street program by the National Main Street Center. Two new restaurants, Alejandro’s at Front Street Station and Smith’s of Mesquite, recently announced they would be opening in early 2021. The first project under the Facade Improvement Program was completed by Metzger Awards. And, progress continues on the $5.5 million Front Street Station public infrastructure project.
