First time I've ever heard that term.

I'm only using this as a loose guide. I can't say the minute you walk past Blair you're NOT downtown, but I myself don't consider as far out as the Yahara. For instance, if I'm going to Mickey's bar, I wouldn't say to someone I'm going downtown. JM park I could argue is downtown. Orton and Tenney, no.
Downtown is a term primarily used in North America by English speakers to refer to a city's core (or center) or CBD (Central Business District)
IMO most of it has to do with economic density. You get as far out as Tenney and you have none of that.
But Hawk does have a point in that I live pretty close to the downtown area so my perception is skewed. I think the farther away you live the bigger the downtown gets.
