It’s time to REDISCOVER Downtown Alexandria, MN! The summer of 2014 ushered in a season of complete reconstruction of Broadway Street Downtown. While all the great updates will surely catch your eye, there were also new partnerships and events formed behind the scenes that will continue to enhance a wonderful, new experience in Downtown Alexandria into the future. These efforts also caught the eye of the Minnesota League of Cities, which is awarding Alexandria the 2015 City of Excellence Award for the project!
