Revived Main Street program board kicks around ideas for Downingtown

    Downingtown’s Main Street Association disbanded five years ago after 24 years in operation. Now that it’s back, board members are tossing around projects the state-funded program could tackle.

    The West Chester Daily Local reports the nonprofit currently has 11 residents and business owners serving as board members for the organization meant to promote community development programs.

    When the relaunch was announced last week, board members suggested crosswalk repairs, rooftop and outdoor dining, a growers market and other ideas as potential projects for the revived Downingtown Main Street Association.

    Previous projects included the Brandywine Trail and an all-abilities playground.
