About Us


Thread City Development’s mission is collaborative partnerships that promote, support, and contribute to a thriving, healthy, aesthetically-appealing downtown community. We celebrate our town’s cultural, social, racial, and ethnic vibrancy, as well as its unique spirit of volunteerism, and its creative resourcefulness. 

We work to support:

  • Existing businesses & organizations
  • Events that attract residents and visitors
  • The arts and cultural assets of our community
  • Investment and reinvestment opportunities locally and broadly
  • Physical appearance of our downtown landscape, including the promotion of public art projects
  • Collaboration among a cross section of community leaders and champions committed to enhancing the image of our neighborhood and creating opportunity for success. 

Our monthly Toast of the Downtown meetings are the forum for us to advocate on behalf of local businesses, organizations, and entities with town government leaders.

Join Us!
