Onward Yankton

Onward Yankton hosted a public work session yesterday to begin the task of completing projects that will enhance our community’s Meridian District.

The work session focused on alleys, archways and lighting in the downtown and Design South Dakota Community Coach John Beranek says the involvement of community members is a vital part of the process of bringing these improvement projects to reality.

Beranek says a recent encounter he had with a former Yankton resident while in Boise Idaho demonstrates the power that revitalizing the downtown area can have for both residents and visitors to the community.

Beranek says groups were formed at yesterday’s work session to continue the process of developing these ideas into improvement projects.
