DELPHOS — They don’t yet have a name but a group is forming to create an environment in downtown Delphos that will make the city’s thoroughfare a viable destination.

Led by downtown business owner Bruce Maag, the thrust of the group will be to build on the positives such as historical aspects like the Miami-Erie Canal, Lincoln Highway, the railroads and churches; and address issues such as downtown beautification, enforcing zoning laws and traffic flow.

“We have a lot going for us in downtown Delphos,” Maag said. “We have a lot of neat architecture, niche shops, restaurants and more. We need to make Delphos a destination again. Delphos was the place to be in the 60s and 70s. We need to get that back.”

Due to the weather, many people who had expressed interest in learning more about Maag’s initiative were unable to attend. To accomodate anyone who would like to be involved, two more meetings to introduce Maag’s ideas and garner more will be held at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tuesday at Currency, Coins and Collectibles. Contact Maag at 419-692-1888 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
