SALISBURY, Md.- The streets aren't very busy and parking spots are open but Trevor O'Connor says people are missing out on downtown Salisbury.
"There's a lot going on and there's a lot to come," he said. "There's a lot of people pushing for it to be a big hot spot of people."
At Cake Art, chef and owner Susan Patt says she relies on the other small businesses downtown to keep her shop going.
"We are definitely more of a destination location, we do have a lot of local businesses that have employees that come in here that like to have a cupcake or chocolate dipped strawberry during the week," she said.
But the Downtown Community Design Workshop being held Saturday is hoping to bring more people, business and foot traffic to the area. The group includes graduate students from the University of Maryland. They will be meeting at 10 a.m. Saturday at the old fire station in Salisbury. People who can't make it to the workshop can follow the group on Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/pages/Envision-Salisbury/609822509084168
