Rhinelander downtown group focuses on moving forward at public meeting

RHINELANDER - Businesses in downtown Rhinelander don't want to lose customers when a stretch of road gets torn up. It's part of a sewage renovation project along with a streetscape project, and local businesses want to make sure they make the most of possible upgrades.

Downtown Rhinelander Inc. (DRI) promotes the downtown area and its businesses. Workers, businesses and community members met Tuesday night to focus on how to move forward. That's as they prepare for a major utility reconstruction project that should start on Brown Street in 2016.

"You don't want to have people start setting different consumer pattern," Downtown Rheinlander Inc. President Dan Kuzlik said. "If they find that, 'well I don't want to go downtown, so I'm gonna go to this place outside of town,' and then all of a sudden that pattern sets up."
