Association wants to make Route 6 a destination

Posted by wlpo on February 6, 2014

Economic development in Peru has been concentrated mostly north of Shooting Park Road.  A new group has been assembled to return some of the focus to Route 6.

The Route 6 Association is a group of business owners selected by Economic Development Director Bob Vickery.  Vickery explained the association to the accounts and finance committee Wednesday.  He rolled out a map of Route 6 that was longer than the conference table.

Vickery says they want to make Route 6 a destination and give it a presence.  He says one idea includes hanging banners and planters from street lights.

The association met for the first time in November and has about a dozen members.  A second meeting hasn’t been scheduled yet. Vickery says eventually they’ll make a presentation to the city council and open up the group to more people.
