“J. Craig Thorpe has been instrumental in the success of our new rail venture, Icicle Station. Our partnership with Craig was so successrful that the City has retained him to produce over 12 other renderings and drawings as part of the Downtown Master Plan. He understands the community’s history, needs and direction for the future and through his art and presentation, he is able to galvanize the mission of the community so we can move forward. The investment in Thorpe’s talents has more than paid for itself for our community.”
