Historic Downtown

Our Historic Downtown has been undergoing some important changes. Our vacancy rate is at a 10-year low and there are more reasons to visit our downtown for dining, shopping, entertainment and community celebrations. I believe that we need to promote more business development downtown and mixed use that include retail storefronts and housing while preserving the historic facades. We will accomplish this by continuing to offer incentives to investors, offering pre-entitlements and simplifying the business permitting process. I will LISTEN to our local community leaders and work with them for what is best for
Gilroy and its residents.
