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.
Downtown businesses and property owners are invited to join Village staff for a meeting to discuss and provide feedback on proposed improvements. Meetings may be scheduled by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We want to hear your feedback! Following your meeting with Village staff, please fill out this short survey: Downtown Beautification Planning Survey
