Downtown Jamestown Continues To Improve
Now that the sidewalks and crosswalks have been completed in Jamestown, it’s time to move to Phase II and III.
Jim O’Neil, Commissioner with the Jamestown Planning Commission, was Wednesday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
“In Phase II, thanks to grant money, we will improve the facades of downtown business. About eight businesses have shown interest in aquiring the look, which will showcase more windows and doors and even improve the signage out front.” O’Neil said.
The Planning Commission also envisions a pleasant connection from downtown Jamestown to Railtown 1897 State Park.
“In Phase III, we will create pathways by improving, repairing and repaving the sidewalks along Willow and Seco streets, ” O’Neil explained, “The utilities will be placed underground and we’ll put new 16 foot lighting posts along the corridors, which will be capable of holding signs leading people to downtown from Railtown, and vice versa.”
O’Neil is also inviting the public to Heritage Day on Sunday October 16th, an all day event featuring wagon trains, horses, music and a chuckwagon lunch.
The “Newsmaker of the Day” is heard each weekday morning on AM 1450 KVML at 6:47, 7:47 and 8:47am.
