The newly renovated entrance to Benson's main street is being welcomed as a sign that public improvements may catch up with, and add to, the resurgent business district's entrepreneurial energy.
“It's another visible step that not only the people in Benson are thinking about Benson but the city is thinking about Benson — and the state is, too,” said D'Ann Lonowski, a businesswoman and co-chairwoman of the Benson Business Improvement District.
