Chuck Bartlett, Great Bend City Engineer:
"The project was about a 2 million dollar project to renovate downtown: new
sidewalks, decorative lighting, trees, an irrigation system. To really improve
the looks of downtown."
Kim Gossardt, Downtown Development, Inc.:
"In the last couple of years, I can't tell how many new businesses we've had that
have come downtown. Some of them are brand new. Others are ones that have
been located in other parts of the city that have moved downtown to the location
because of the atmosphere downtown. It's just incredible to come in and see
the difference that it's made. It's made a real positive impact."
