In the 10 years that I have been doing DowntownMakeover, I've written about a lot of projects that never came to fruition. For some of these projects, that's probably a good thing. For others, well let's just say I still wish some of them would happen. 

Number One on my list would be the Facade Improvement Program on Virginia Street. It was an awesome collaboration of private businesses and the City of Reno, but ultimately the funding just wasn't there to do it. What was amazing about this project, is that for the most part all of the building owners on this block came to a consensus on the building improvements proposed. Check it out below, it's one of many projects that maybe should be given a second look.
