Revitalizing Downtown Kinston

Slowly but surely the city of Kinston is reinventing it's downtown area. Officials hope to bring back more businesses and residents to that portion of town.

Revitalization efforts have been underway for some time now and many old dilapidated businesses are being refurbished along Queen Street. While these shops will soon be turned into specialty stores, restaurants, and other business ventures, brand new apartment complexes will soon be added to the area.

The Pride of Kinston meantime is changing its marketing incentive plans. They plan on meeting with business leaders to offer them some money to help improve the appearance of their businesses.
