Marion’s revitalization path highlighted by municipal league

This month, the Virginia Municipal Leagues’ magazine, Virginia Town and City, features a cover story on the revitalization of Downtown Marion.

The subhead reads: “Downtown success story wasn’t written overnight,” and the article, by Marion Downtown Revitalization Association Executive Director Ken Heath, stresses the deliberate, step-by-step approach the community has taken to bring visitors downtown to shop and engage in Marion’s rich cultural heritage.  (It’s home to both Mountain Dew and the Mayan Revival Lincoln Theater.)

We won’t spoil the article for you; read it and the rest of the issue online.
