Possible changes to downtown Houghton


City leaders in Houghton are considering a plan that could improve the downtown area.  ABC Ten’s Keweenaw Bureau Reporter Rick Allen has the story.


Downtown Houghton could be brought up to a whole new level.


That was the statement made by Houghton City Manager Scott MacInnis during a recent city council meeting.


The excitement centers on what a marketing solutions company…Impact Retailing…can do for the downtown.


The Munising based-company is owned by Denise Hansen…who has worked with big name clients such as Disney and Victoria’s Secret.


MacInnis hopes she can use that experience to help the downtown move forward.

The city council will review Hansen’s proposal and discuss it further in their next meeting.


If approved, MacInnis said he would expect to start seeing results in about six months.
