Downtown Neighborhood Branding Idea

Posted:

With an ever-growing downtown Bismarck... the Downtowners Association is playing with a new idea.

It's called Neighborhood Branding - giving an area of downtown a specific name.

Assistant Director of the Downtowners Kate Herzog says this is common in most downtowns.

For example, Fargo has a neighborhood called "Soma" for South Main.

So far, the association has thought of one Irish area of Bismarck - the boundaries are Rosser, 2nd Street, Main Avenue, and Custer Park.

It's a more industrial part of town that would be called "Kerry Patch."

The Downtowners are still working on a naming mechanism and have not approached property owners yet.
