Downtown Tiffin surging again

The past month has seen tremendous activity in downtown Tiffin. Surge Staffing, a national staffing agency, just announced they would be opening a new office. More Facade Enhancement Grants were awarded, bringing the total number of projects to 9 this year (and 20 total) and representing more than $400K in new investment since last August. A new mural is being painted, and local historians are giving weekly tours. Festivals and farmers' markets are drawing 1,000+ to the downtown on a regular basis.


A new newsletter - the Downtown Tiffin Times - is also now coming out monthly on new businesses, events, and progress on the downtown plan. You can sign up by emailing Katie Lang.
