Goldsboro Downtown Experiencing ‘Boom’ of Businesses, Residents

July 11, 2017

Business owners in downtown Goldsboro are benefiting from the area’s recent revitalization, and many citizens are enjoying their community more than ever. It’s not just big cities that are experiencing booming downtown areas. Many smaller cities and towns are jumping on the bandwagon as well, revitalizing old or empty parts of town. “You used step outside and look from one end of the street to the other and not see anybody,” said Harrington. “It’s not like that anymore. Over the past few years, the area has been reborn.” “It’s just been amazing,” added Julie Metz of the Downtown Goldsboro Development Corporation, an organization that is part of the city’s effort to breathe life into the central business district. “It’s exceeded our expectations.”
