Downtown Partnership Director to leave

Heidi Ham is leaving her position as executive director of the Downtown Partnership. Ham is leaving July 21 to move with her family to Arkansas, where her husband has taken a new job, according to a monthly e-mail newsletter sent to downtown businesses and media.

Ham oversaw reconstruction of Main Street over the past 2 years, with crews replacing sewer and water lines as well as widening sidewalks and adding children’s play areas. Installation of fiber optics on Main Street is scheduled to begin within two weeks. Crews are working to reverse the reverse angle parking that was installed on Main and South 7th Streets.

The Downtown Partnership, which consists of the tax-funded Downtown Development Authority and the merchant-funded Downtown Association, has begun to search for a new executive director.
