Gottingen Street changing in big ways

Business Improvement District is formed, dental clinic in the works, efforts to open grocery store and bank.

There's a new energy on Gottingen Street, and that energy is playing out in all sorts of interesting and positive ways. There is big news this week for the street: A north end business improvement district is being formed. And there is big almost news for the street: a full dental clinic has been outfitted, and organizers are just trying to figure out how to get it up and running. And there's also important, long term trends on the street: There's a real possibility that Gottingen will soon see both a grocery store and a bank office, and the street's biggest and longest standing eyesore is about to come down.
