Civic Center Parking Garage and Main Street Pedestrian Access
Civic Center Parking Garage
The Village Board is evaluating preliminary design plans for a public parking garage which, if approved, would be located behind the Village’s Civic Center at 535 Duane Street. The parking garage, if given final approval by the Board, will provide approximately 300 parking spaces (230 new net spaces). This will provide for greater parking opportunities for patrons of the downtown, including the varying needs of commuters, customers and employees.
Main Street Pedestrian Access
As part of this vision, the Village purchased the building at 423 N. Main Street. In April 2019, the Board approved the first phase of the overall project to include the demolition of the structure on Main Street to create a pedestrian connection from the parking lot behind the Civic Center to Main Street. This improvement will provide better access for customers and employees between the parking lot and businesses in the downtown. Look for the pedestrian connection to begin taking shape in 2019.
