We feel lucky to live in this creatively thriving place. It is ideal for businesses like ours. Artistic people are flocking from around the country to come join this community. (Shhh, don't let them all in on our secret!) Just a few days ago I read an article in Glenwood's Post Independent titled "Carbondale - Center of the Art Universe?" And I thought, 'yes, I believe it is...' (You can read that article too): http://www.postindependent.com/news/16669103-113/carbondale-center-of-the-art-universe.
One ongoing development is Carbondale's Creative Plan which is really picking up momentum. The plan is based on strengthening local businesses, artists and organizations through collaboration, creativity and community. It focuses on wayfinding and connectivity, led by Carbondale Council for Arts and Humanities in partnership with the Town of Carbondale.
We are excited about this plan and can't wait to see the ways it benefits our community. Here in Carbondale, we believe strongly in building community through art, culture and creativity.
Below is a lit up bike path, one of many amazing ideas established by the creative plan!
