Akron State of the City Address
TIM RUDELL / WKSU

Akron Mayor Dan Horrigan wants to flesh out a plan for a community development corporation, or CDC, for downtown.

Horrigan wants to treat community development downtown as its own separate entity, rather than making it a part of other city initiatives.

The CDC would be focused on bringing vitality to the central business district.
