Citizens’ Information Meeting

Waynesboro Downtown Development’s Design Committee and the City Planning Department are co-hosting a Citizen’s Information Meeting on the Downtown Streetscape Plans on Tuesday, December 13th from 6pm to 8 pm. These plans are for streetscape improvements to the 500 block of West Main Street and Wayne Avenue from Federal Street to Broad Street. This meeting will be held in the Wayne Theatre Alliances’ Gateway building, at 329 West Main Street.

The purpose of the meeting is to collect comments from interested citizens, business owners, and adjacent property owners on the latest set of plans. These plans represent the response to public comments on the concept plans shown to the public August 17th, 2011.  The December 13th meeting will provide the public an opportunity to comment on the plans before the final engineering phase begins.

These projects are funded through a Federal Transportation Enhancement Grant and the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG).  They focus on replacing sidewalks, adding brick pavers, landscaping, streetlights, street furniture, and bike racks. These projects will also improve pedestrian safety with the provision of ADA compliant ramps, bump-outs, and crosswalks. Phase II of the Waynesboro Main Street Streetscape Project represents a major step in the revitalization of Downtown Waynesboro.

Any questions can be directed to the Planning Office, at (540) 942-6604.
