The Grand Central District has been home to many small businesses and residents for many years, and those who’ve been here for some time, have been lucky enough to witness the insurmountable growth that’s happened in such a short period of time. For all of us here at the Grand Central District Association, we couldn’t be more pleased with what this district has become, and we’re working hard to keep knocking visitors socks off with new and improved additions and revisions.

With that being said, we are so ecstatic to welcome our new Executive Director, Tawnee Walling. She has already begun making huge strides in the growth of the district and has a “can’t stop, won’t stop” attitude of doing what it takes to bring the district what it needs to make all of our local business owners and residents happy to be a part of the community.

A big change that we’re proud to announce is that we’re building our incentive package for any new and existing members of the GCDA. Once we’ve generated the exciting list of cool stuff you’ll get, we’ll be making our rounds to give you all of the information for your chance to become a GCDA member.

***Please note that all businesses are open during regular business hours on the 2400 block of Central Ave. during sidewalk construction.***
