// FAST FACTS ABOUT MAIN STREET

Over $300 million has been invested on Main Street over the last five years. It has created wonderful public spaces, office buildings, apartments, condominiums, and retail spaces. There are now over 250 people living in a three-block stretch of Main Street.

P R O U D LY PRESENTS

The City Center Partnership provides Hospitality Services to downtown residents, visitors, and employees via our “Yellow Shirts”. This service includes vehicular or pedestrian escorts anywhere within the downtown district—great for a ride home from your favorite restaurant or a walk to the bank with a friendly Yellow Shirt by your side.

Welcome to Urban Tour 2011 An urban lifestyle is a way in which residents of a densely-populated region go about daily business. There is typically a greater amount of walking and use of public transportation. This involves a large mixing of cultures, a cosmopolitan society, high regard for personal fashion style, and appreciation of the arts.
