Downtowns are a place where people generally like to feel enclosed, according to Tim Reinders, design specialist for Main Street Iowa.
Reinders was on hand for an architecture walk Wednesday night that included a tour of the historic Snell Building and a stroll down Central Avenue.
Fort Dodge was designated as a Main Street Iowa community in August.
Main Street Iowa is a program led by the Iowa Economic Development Authority. Its goal is to improve the downtown area of the cities that are part of the program.
The architecture tour was a chance for Reinders, city officials and guests to get an up close look at what can be done to improve the city’s center.
