Reimagine Cumberland Featured In 2023 Top News

January 3rd, 2024 by WCBC Radio

Making the list this year of WCBC’s Top News stories was the Reimagine Cumberland project. Updating ancient infrastructure and undoing the urban renewal of the late 1970s that put a pedestrian mall through the middle of downtown, the construction project started in Spring. Holiday activities including the tree lighting, Winter Market, and New Year’s Eve Ball Drop were moved to Canal Place Plaza this year. Hopes are to have a reimagined downtown ready by next Fall.
