North Main Street Named as "Great Places in America"

Characteristics and Guidelines of Great Streets

A street comprises the entire three-dimensional visual corridor, including the public realm and how it relates to the adjacent land uses. Submissions should document the street’s character across this realm.

Streets of different types are eligible, ranging from pedestrian realms through arterial roadways, but each should have a definable beginning and end.

Special emphasis is placed on streets that are complete, that is, streets that service and take into account all users — not just motor vehicles.

North Main Street was named in 2009 as a great place! Check it out here!
