UNITE North Main Website

by | Dec 18, 2015 | Downtown - Reinvest, Greater Jamestown, Healthy Neighborhoods

We want to hear what you think are the key challenges and opportunities along North Main Street. Use the map on our new project website to leave your feedback on improvements you would like to see at specific locations or trouble spots that should be addressed.

The master plan for the North Main Street corridor — the first phase of the Unite North Main project — is now underway. Clark Patterson Lee, a design firm with an office on North Main, is developing a plan that will provide a blueprint to advance the following goals:

  • Distinctive: Develop a positive, distinctive, and memorable identity for North Main Street.
  • Vibrant: Promote interaction and a sense of community — a true “Main Street”.
  • Safe: Make the street user-friendly for pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists.
  • Beautiful: Enhance the street’s curb appeal through landscaping and exterior reinvestment.
  • Welcoming: Greet visitors with helpful and attractive orientation signage.

PLEASE remember to participate in a positive and constructive way. This project is about making things better!
