The City of Grants Pass has a vibrant downtown and the local merchants and small business entrepreneurs are working hard to improve the downtown shopping experience. One of the things that makes for a vibrant downtown is lighting. Illuminating the storefronts to show off merchandise at night while the city is still bustling with local diners, creates an atmosphere for window-shopping. Storefront lighting in place when a business is closed gives locals and tourist alike an added sense of safety. Encouraging downtown merchants to improve the aesthetics of their storefronts will be beneficial to citizens in addition to attracting tourism.
