The enduring character of downtown Evergreen is valued by merchants and visitors alike, but drawbacks are noted as well.
What’s good and bad about downtown Evergreen?

Downtown Evergreen has a blend of established businesses and new ones putting down roots, and their customers sometimes struggle to find a parking place and walk precariously along Main Street where the sidewalks end. 

During a March 24 meeting on potential updates to a community plan for Evergreen, Jeffco planner Russell Clark asked attendees to identify “the good and the bad” in the downtown area. 

Later, a reporter asked downtown business owners for their own answers to that question.
