Proposed streetscape improvements for North Main Street: curb extensions,
new crosswalks, and lighting.
|Portions of North Main Street outside the downtown core are in transition from residential to commercial use as the result of a desire on the part of business owners to locate along primary transportation corridors where there are fewer site-development constraints than in downtown. To prevent degradation of the street’s residential character while still accommodating appropriate business development opportunities, restoration of former residential structures should be encouraged where possible. Obsolete buildings should be replaced with new construction that contributes to a pedestrian-oriented streetscape and is compatible with the scale and character of the surrounding neighborhood.|
