Design means getting Main Street into top physical shape and creating a safe, inviting environment for shoppers, workers, and visitors while preserving a place’s historic character. Successful Main Streets take advantage of the visual opportunities inherent in a commercial district by directing attention to all of its physical elements: public and private buildings, storefronts, signs, public spaces, parking areas, street furniture, public art, landscaping, merchandising, window displays, and promotional materials. An appealing atmosphere, created through attention to all of these visual elements, conveys a positive message about the commercial district and what it has to offer.
The Design Committee meets monthly on topics related to partnerships, collaboration, engagement, and fund development. The following are our three primary goals/objectives for 2016.
- A visually vibrant Main Street service area
- Increase/improve collaboration with stakeholders, the public, and the Town
- Increase/improve funding for Design Committee initiatives
Current members of the Design Committee are:
- Bryan Schley (chair)
- Jessica Hupp
- Bart Warner
- Tim Black
- Bill Mosely
