EDC taking closer look at Main Street area

BEACON FALLS — The Economic Development Commission has scheduled a downtown walking tour for June 17 to help develop a strategic plan for the Main Street area.

Officials, residents and business owners are invited to join the commission on the walk, which begins at 9 a.m. Those interested in joining are asked to meet at Beacon Falls Pharmacy, 20 North Main St.

During the walk, which will go along North Main Street and South Main Street from Church Street to Dumschott Road, officials will evaluate current parking, infrastructure, new construction, and blight concerns.

“The EDC recognizes that something must be done to better utilize the downtown area, and a walking tour is a terrific way to start,” said EDC Chairman Jack Betkoski in a press release. “It is vital to hear from everyone regarding this project.”

For more information, call the commission at 203-217-4358.
