The Turlock Downtown Property Owners Association (TDPOA) recently moved from their old location at 300 Main Street, up the road to the Shoppers Eden center located at 310 Main St. The new office allows the TDPOA to work independently, as the previous location was shared with various businesses over the years due to the Business Incubator program.
The two year program, which aimed to help start up businesses by subleasing small spaces for them at the location until they located elsewhere, will no longer be running at the previous building. Instead, a local antique shop has taken over the previous location as its new home.
The TDPOA’s office hours will remain the same until July 1st and will then change to be open Tuesday through Friday from 9am to 3pm.
Along with the transition of location, the TDPOA is also currently working on the needed maintenance of the downtown area by investing thousands of their own dollars in fixing pavers and trimming the trees and plants. Although there is no firm schedule on when the maintenance will be finished, most of the tree trimming work will not be started until July 1. Since downtown property owners pay an extra tax for regular maintenance, the TDPOA’s prime directive is to make sure that the money gets spent in the most efficient and cost effective way possible.
The current maintenance, however, is not a long term solution as there are no long term maintenance solutions available for such an area due to the combination of both trees and concrete. With parking lots, trees and plants requiring regular maintenance to help the downtown area retain an attractive appearance, the TDPOA is committed to working on such maintenance projects in order to help downtown Turlock flourish.
