Today we celebrated the grand re-opening of 880 Alexandria Pike with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 10am! Doug Schoepf is the owner of the building along with his sister. They were one of the first recipients of the Fort Thomas GROW Grants. They went through the Design Review process. They were inspired to continue their renovations with the interior and now this beauty is filled with businesses. Thank you to Executive Transportation and Grassroots and Vine for helping to make the day so enjoyable. Congrats to all the participating businesses. And thank you to all who came out to support these small businesses today.

When this happens, it's usually because the owner only shared it with a small group of people, changed who can see it or it's been deleted.

History

During the late 1990’s the city’s elected body, staff and community volunteers engaged in a considerable effort to assess the city’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats as it planned for the new millennium and continued success for the community. This effort included a long range strategic visioning process, update of the city’s official 20-year Comprehensive Plan, and consensus building from the elected body to establish priorities and areas of focus. These initiatives were completed with involvement and input from elected officials, city staff, volunteer committees, focus group meetings and professional consultants. One common theme that arose throughout this planning process was the need to reinvest in and revitalize the city’s urban core, specifically its historic business districts which were beginning to show signs of economic and physical decline.

In 2000, the city formed a citizen volunteer committee named Fort Thomas Forward to lead the development of an urban design and streetscape master plan for the center of town. During this same period, the city received state designation as a silver-level Renaissance Kentucky/Main Street community for its CBD revitalization efforts and received $95,000 in Direct Appropriation funds to underwrite some of the initial streetscape revitalization costs, specifically a CBD utility relocation project, market study, and new CBD streetscape design and engineering. Subsequently, a part-time manager position and Fort Thomas Renaissance Board were created pursuant to the requirements of the state Renaissance Kentucky/Main Street program.
