These improvements were necessary from an infrastructure standpoint and have created improved look and feel to the main corridor in downtown, adding more value and appeal to properties. Several Main Street private investments are expected to follow, including multiple new restaurant openings, a new bank opening, and a potential theatre restoration. Main Street improvements will continue to the North End with a state funded project, and to the South End with a city and state funded project.
