Lombard and Main to Become a Downtown Centerpiece

Designers are working on plans to turn the open space at the corner of Lombard and Main Streets into an “aesthetic centerpiece” for the downtown area, Town Manager Steve Biggs told the Town Council this week.

While retaining a parking area, the spot will add to the beauty of downtown, he said.

“The emphasis is on green space, making it an attractive area,” the Town Manager said. “We will also be looking for opportunities to add a public art element.”

The plan is a departure from earlier ideas to put commercial space and upscale condominiums on the property.
