Lighting Up Downtown

Main Street volunteers, in cooperation with the City, were responsible for lighting up downtown in time for the Chamber of Commerce's Annual Christmas Celebration. This was a very successful event, and several local businesses reported having their best day ever. This was the first year that lit palms extended all the way to the Bowery district. One of the Design Committee's goals is helping to create continuity throughout the downtown commerical district with landscape, streetscape, and other projects that attract visitors to experience all that downtown has to offer. In this photo, Main Street Chair Jim Bachrach and Chamber of Commerce Executive Director John Solomon partner up to light palms on Commerce Street.  Main Street's Design Committee also provides ongoing volunteer support to implement the City’s landscape and streetscape improvement projects.
