Downtown Redding Gets Expensive Facelift

An artist's conception of a future downtown scene.

Downtown Redding will look very different in just a few years.  Between a brand-new Shasta County courthouse and some other projects in the works, something like $200 million will be spent on new construction in the heart of the city.

It's exciting news for the Redding Chamber of Commerce, which itself moved downtown just last year. 

The Redding-based McConnell Foundation put some money into the makeover.  We get a perspective on the spending and how profoundly it will change downtown from Rachel Hatch at the foundation.
