Description
It is time to revitalize Downtown Fostoria. The downtown core has been facing adversity since the 1950s when the construction of Route 23 drew traffic away from Main Street. Over the last 20 years, the Fostoria community has lost thousands of jobs and downtown vacancies have increased. The recent economic downturn in 2008 further crippled the city and left few active businesses in the downtown. Fostoria’s economy is finally on the upswing and many downtown property owners are now engaged in revitalization efforts, setting the scene for redevelopment. We are pleased with Fostoria’s potential and we are excited to tackle the challenge of restoring the downtown.
