The Covington News - - Front page -

The Cov­ing­ton City Coun­cil will likely ex­tend the city’s cen­tral busi­ness district bound­aries as part of a broader plan to en­cour­age more eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment down­town.

Mem­bers of Main Street Cov­ing­ton at­tended the coun­cil’s Mon­day work ses­sion to brief them on the pro­posal to ex­tend the cen­tral busi­ness district, which is now called mixed use down­town, un­der the new zon­ing or­di­nance.

“We feel like this is the per­fect time to be dis­cussing [ex­pand­ing the CBD] be­cause the ho­tel/civic cen­ter is mov­ing for­ward,” said Bil­lie Jean What­ley, a mem­ber of Main Street Cov­ing­ton.

Main Street Cov­ing­ton pro­posed ex­tend­ing the CBD from the Cov­ing­ton square down Pace Street to­wards U.S. High­way 278.
