The Downtown Beautification Plan was crafted to help envision opportunities for public investment in the Downtown Machesney Park area. Below you can view pictures of the plans which illustrate possible improvements, including new wayfinding signage, median landscaping, lighted canopy and dwarf trees, illuminated street name signs, and more!
The ultimate goal of the plan is to give the Downtown area a unique identity and increase traffic to downtown businesses and events. It is important to note that improvements will come at no cost to downtown businesses or homeowners. Following consensus from the Downtown business community and residents, the Village intends to seek funding from a variety of sources, including grants, to construct improvements.
PLAN OPEN HOUSE
Downtown businesses and residents are invited to join us at Village Hall for an open house to discuss and provided feedback on proposed improvements. Not able to attend either event? Business owners may schedule individual meetings with Village staff by emailing email@example.com.
