• Plainfield downtown renovations garners award

    November 03, 2011 No comments

    Indiana Main Street recently honored the Town of Plainfield with the 2011 Indiana Main Street Best Design of Downtown Public Improvements Award during the statewide Indiana Main Street Conference, held at Alice’s Restaurant in Arcadia.

    The Indiana Main Street Program is managed by the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA).

    Plainfield rehabilitated 15 historic commercial facades and completed a streetscape project in the heart of the community. The improvements have created a safer environment for pedestrians and motorists and a more visually attractive downtown area.

    Six businesses have since relocated into the newly improved buildings, and more are expected to follow. The Town Center had a 40 percent vacancy rate before the improvements; currently only two buildings remain unoccupied, one of which is currently under interior renovation.

    Indiana Main Street was established to provide economic revitalization and professional assistance to participating communities. Indiana Main Street encourages the revitalization and restoration of downtown areas in Indiana cities and towns.
