The business community has embraced the Northwind Crossings business park by relocating headquarters or expanding their existing business within the area. Our redevelopment commission has completed the downtown plan and is working toward implementation. The downtown lakefront district designation is helping with businesses through facade grants, riverside liquor license applications and a district branding campaign.
Seniors can use the newly opened Maria Reiner Senior Center, which provides a warm, inviting social environment, health and wellness programs, and educational classes. The Hobart YMCA strengthens our community through well-being, fitness, family time, sports and play, for people of all ages.
Through our strong community organizations that offer spaghetti dinners, chili suppers, dam duck races, concerts in the park and mud volleyball tournaments, they not only raise funds for their organizations but also for the betterment of the city. These events are a time to visit with old neighborhood friends and take pride in the community.
In the past few years, the city has focused on special events to highlight what the city has to offer: remote-controlled boat races in Lake George, Movies in the Park, Summer Market in Festival Park on Thursday evenings and the annual four-day Lakefront Festival, to name a few.
For living, working or enjoyment, Hobart truly has something to offer everyone.
