Map of Projects in Downtown Kent:

The eclectic mix of music, arts, natural beauty, historic downtown, Kent State University, and an international business presence in a small town setting is the Kent community signature. It’s that unique mix that sets Kent apart and is Kent’s competitive advantage. The downtown re-development project seeks to showcase these elements and leverage them in a winning economic formula that has been built by the people that live, work, learn, and play in Kent.
