This is the place where we come together to make our downtown a place for everyone to enjoy.
This is the place to think outside the box, to give warm welcomes, and take pride in your city.

Vacant Storefront Program
Downtown PKB’s Vacant Storefront Program’s (VSP) primary objective, therefore, is to repurpose vacant storefronts until they can be filled with permanent tenants or residents. This is accomplished by occupying vacant storefronts with visually attractive window displays produced by creative individuals and organizations. This not only gives potential exhibitors an opportunity to showcase their work, but draws attention to what otherwise is an empty space.
Downtown PKB’s Design Committee has identified our key gateways into the downtown business district and is moving forward with decorative banners which will serve to welcome visitors to our downtown community.
Downtown PKB’s Design Committee works hard to improve the aesthetic appearance of our downtown by organizing community members and downtown businesses to take part in our bi-annual Cleanup/Greenup events. If you're interested in helping with the next Cleanup event, watch our Facebook page for details!
