ICSC Recon 2013

Our Economic Development Director just attended ICSC Recon in Las Vegas. This annual event is the global convention for the shopping center industry and is attended by retailers and real estate professionals from around the world. Attendance was up this year with over 34,000 attendees. Steven Levitt, best-selling author of Freakonomics and Superfreakonomics was the keynote speaker.

In addition to the conference, we had 8 scheduled meetings with local and national brokers, developers and retailers and spoke to many others on the show floor. We met with the owners of the largest retail developments in Nampa including the Nampa Gateway Center, Treasure Valley Marketplace, and the Karcher Mall.

Library Square Groundbreaking

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the Library Square Groundbreaking yesterday. We celebrated the progress on the library project with over 300 people (including lots of kids!). The block was a sea of "Dig into Reading" balloons, miniature hardhats and gold shovels. Our partners at the Gardner Company and ESI helped us plan an exciting day.

We can't wait for the next big event- the grand opening in late 2014!
