Main Street Project Celebration Friday

Citizens are invited to join in a celebration of newly redesigned Main Avenue on Friday, Nov. 4. Businesses adjacent to the project will be having specials as well.

The celebration will begin with a noon ceremony on the south sidewalk between Division and Browne streets, and then people are encouraged to visit businesses, have lunch, and enter to win a variety of raffle prizes.

This summer, Main Avenue from east of Browne to west of Division got a unique new look, that’s designed to enhance the business environment, improve the pedestrian experience, and make it easier to park.

Most distinctive is the addition of center-lane angle parking and a mid-block pedestrian crossing on the block of Main from Browne to Division. In all, the project has provided 21 new auto and eight motorcycle parking spots. New landscaping, safer pedestrians crossing areas, and pay-by-plate parking kiosks are also part of enhanced streetscape.
