We have seen numerous façade improvements take form in downtown Beatrice, in 2018 alone we saw nearly $1.5 million in building improvements!
In addition to building improvements downtown has seen nearly $2 million invested in public and private street, sidewalk, and lighting improvements including the completion of the Standing Bear Trail in Downtown Beatrice.
From January 2016 until the end of 2018 downtown Beatrice has seen a net gain of 18 small businesses and 85 new jobs. More businesses are expected to open in 2019.
Many are surprised to learn that our downtown is home to over 175 businesses! We feel that downtown Beatrice is growing and is the place to be!
The community and the downtown are facing challenges, but those challenges can be overcome. We are excited for what the future holds and we will be working hard to continue finding success for our downtown and for Beatrice as a whole!
