The city of Watertown might end up turning to a coach in order to try and figure out how to attract businesses to its downtown area.

The Watertown Local Development Corporation had a meeting with the head of The Retail Coach.

It’s a national consulting company that helps communities identify which businesses would fit their demographics.

The Retail Coach also would work to actively recruit those types of businesses.

A proposal on specifics should be in Watertown official’s hands at some point next week.
