The Future Of Downtown Aledo Involves Retention Plus New Ideas For Vacant Storefronts

A big part of the future of downtown Aledo will involve the intentions of some new building owners.  Todd Thompson is a consultant with 353 Court working with the city.


Former Aledo resident W.J. Albertson now owns several key properties, including the former library building and former Hall’s Shoes, Appleton Law Office and Aledo Meat Market storefronts. But his plans for those properties have not been made public. 353 Court’s Erik Reader says retaining existing businesses also remains key.


353 Court was retained by the city in a multi-year agreement last February.
