A stretch of Main Avenue downtown will look very different soon. A new streetscape design has just been finished and over $160,000 will be invested on West Main Avenue between Washington and Pine Streets.
The project’s goal is to add vibrancy and expand the kinds of community uses that are possible in the busy area. Here’s a rundown of what the changes entail:
The most visible change will be the multi-purpose area in the middle of the street. On weekdays, it will be a space for diagonal car parking. During special events, the space can serve as a gathering area for people as well as parking.

The City is getting ready to send the Main Avenue Streetscape Project to construction companies to bid on. Work could potentially start during the 2016 construction season. For more information, please see our Main Avenue Streetscape Pilot Project page.
