Design Goals

The Design Committee deals with the appearance of our business district, our historic district, our landscaping, and lighting. These elements along with a pedestrian safe environment create a quality place to shop, work, walk, and live. With historic preservation as its base, the design committee will create and sustain a pedestrian friendly downtown environment. Through its visual image, downtown will be viewed as the heart of the region and will be a designation for shopping, investing, and community building. The Design Committee will:
  • Preserve downtown’s unique architectural details
  • Provide good lighting for buildings and pedestrian areas
  • Provide appropriate and attractive streetscape and landscape features
  • Encourage attractive window displays
  • Provide colorful accents such as event flags and banners
  • Provide shade trees
  • Provide clean buildings and streets
  • Provide attractive parking areas
  • Provide appropriate signage
