Salisbury Maryland is a small city located on the Eastern Shore and most widely known for its award-winning university and close proximity to the beach. For many years now local officials have been working tirelessly to build this city to its full potential and make it an exciting and homey location for citizens to grow their families and bring new businesses to the Delmarva Peninsula.
The evolution of this small city has been extensive by implementing the well-known Third Friday event where once a month local vendors and artisans set up booths with trinkets and treats for sale. There is often live music, food trucks and entertainment the whole family can enjoy. Salisbury has also hosted the National Folk Festival for the past two years bringing music lovers from all over the nation to the small city.
The next step in the bettering the area is creating a newly renovated downtown plaza in the heart of Downtown Salisbury. The project will essentially be giving a facelift to the city with new sidewalks, streetlamps, and landscaping as well as allowing local businesses and residents to run high-speed internet lines.
Though the finished product is to be a beautiful new downtown area, the lengthy construction has caused problems for local business owners, some of which have decided to relocate their businesses in order to avoid the hassle of dealing with the construction.
Other local businesses, however, are please and very much excited about all the changes coming to the area. Nicole Rogers, manager of Angello’s Scoops located on E Main Street, thinks the city has great potential and looks forward to the changes that will make downtown a family destination. “It’s difficult to deal with right now but the end result is a newer, better city to raise our families and grow our business in. Who wouldn’t want that?”
Rogers and the rest of the Angello’s team are excited for all the changes coming to the area and look forward to the conclusion of the construction which is expected to end in late 2020.
