What do you want to see in your downtown? The City is looking to jump start our downtown by encouraging residential and commercial developments that allow folks to live within walking distance of Main Street, and we are soliciting your feedback through social media. You can look at the outline of the Catalyst program that being proposed by clicking here.

As we dig into how to encourage this development, what we need to know from the public is . . .

  • What should these residential buildings look like? 
  • What sorts of businesses would you like to see? 
  • What are good models for Ferndale’s downtown?

Remember that the City does not conduct private development, but we can encourage some projects to move forward through tax incentives.
