A new vision for North Main

More walkable, welcoming corridor in the works
A pedestrian engulfed in a sea of cars crosses North Main Avenue at 24th Street on Wednesday morning. “It’s not an inviting place to walk. Highway 550 is busy. Traffic moves quickly and with great volume,” Zia Taqueria owner Tim Turner said.
While better traffic and pedestrian flow can encourage business revitalization, for large-scale redevelopment on North Main Avenue to happen, business owners and the city may need to work together.
North Main improvement plans

Current: Compiling data on businesses and other land uses to create a character analysis.
