The city is submitting a video to HGTV for a chance to be featured on their new show, Home Town Takeover; the network’s biggest renovation project ever. Our video submission will be focused on downtown and the gateway entrances to the area.
On Saturday, February 1st at 10am, The Chamber, City of Monroe and Downtown Monroe came together to hold a community photo shoot to be used as part of our submission video. "We had an amazing turnout of business leaders, community organizations and SO many residents braving the rain to come together for this! It was a huge success and such a memorable day we will all cherish regardless if we win or not. You could feel the love for Monroe in these pictures, and that's why I am proud to call Monroe home!" Said Janelle Drews Executive Director of Monroe Chamber of Commerce.
The photo was taken on West Main Street (between Blakely and Lewis Streets).
