Alley Enhancement Program
In addition to the Façade Restoration Program, the Jamestown Renaissance Corporation launched the Alley Enhancement Program in 2008. The program is geared at strategically restoring existing alleys in the downtown core, turning each in to more attractive, safe and pedestrian-friendly walkways to help ease the ability for people to travel downtown.
Thanks to a public-private partnership between the Gebbie Foundation, the JRC, the City of Jamestown's Department of Public Works and a local contractor, two alleys – Foundry Alley between Third and Second Streets and Factory Alley between Fourth and Third Streets – were completed in 2008.
The Alley Enhancement Program continued in 2009. The JRC maintained its partnership with the Gebbie Foundation and the City of Jamestown's DPW to complete Hoyt Alley and Potters Alley, both between Fourth and Third Streets.
An additional alley was completed in 2010. Mechanics Alley between Fourth and Third Streets was renovated in anticipation of the JRC's redevelopment plans for the Winter Garden Theater site.
Future alley enhancement projects will be considered on a case-by-case basis. The goal for each alley enhancement is to complement development at adjacent buildings.
