SALISBURY, Md.-  Downtown Salisbury has its fair share of vacant buildings. Newly re-elected Mayor Jim Ireton wants to change that.  Business owners downtown agree.  They cannot wait for new competition to drive more foot traffic to the area.

The mayor's "Let's Do Business in Salisbury" campaign is built on a few ideas.  The plan aims at creating a "one stop shop" for prospective business owners.  It will streamline the process to create an easy pro-business atmosphere.

Ireton also wants to utilize parking lots for store space.  Lastly, Ireton would like the city to lower its capacity fees by 60 percent.
