Downtown Mansfield has been involved in restoring and revitalizing downtown Mansfield for 20 years. During this time, we have focused primarily on retail and service businesses as well as commercial buildings in the downtown. For the past few years, issues related to housing in various areas close to and within DMI’s program area have become a greater concern. We understand the relationship between housing and business and the importance of each entity’s role to the sustainability of the other. We feel that in order to effectively restore downtown Mansfield, we must also address the issues in the near downtown neighborhoods. Our work now takes us into various areas across the city including the Chamber District, Hedges District, St. Peter's District and Westinghouse District.
