Downtown Revitalization is never an easy endeavor, but for communities striving for a healthy and vibrant urban core, there are many tools available. One of the most effective tools is the Revitalization District Liquor Permit Designation. Pioneered by Main Street Wooster and the City of Wooster with assistance from Heritage Ohio, this legislation allows a downtown to access more liquor permits than would otherwise be available, thus making restaurant retention and attraction a considerably easier prospect. Join us as we interview Main Street Wooster Executive Director, Sandra Hull, and the Wooster Chamber of Commerce Director, Justin Starlin, to discuss the Revitalization District Legislation, how it works, and what it has meant for Wooster.

I hope you’re planning to join us next Thursday in downtown Wooster for our Cash Mob Wine Tasting, a joint benefit for SoMar Wine Cellars, Main Street Wooster, and Heritage Ohio (info on the particulars here) for just $20.
When is getting mobbed a good thing? When it’s a Cash Mob descending upon a downtown retailer. There’s something special about thanking a local retailer in an intimate setting for his or her efforts to make the downtown a better place to live, work, shop, and play.
We think the following quote from Robert Mondavi aptly represents both the value of wine, and the value of nonprofit organizations helping people here in Ohio to live better: “Wine is art. It’s culture. It’s the essence of civilization and the art of living.”
We look forward to seeing you in Wooster next week!
PS Did you know that the concept of the Cash Mob began right here in Ohio (even though the term was first used in New York state)? This webpage has details about the concept, what it means, and how the event may evolve and change in the future.
