Grand Prairie Revitalization

  • Phase one of a multi-phased, multi-disciplined, holistic economic redevelopment strategy aimed at the revitalization of a faltering historic downtown
  • Includes the renovation of the existing facades for two full blocks on Main Street and the reconfiguration of Main Street itself
  • Buildings will be renovated to their historical period, some will be restored to landmark status and seek designation through the National Parks Service
  • Renovations provide a pedestrian-friendly destination that allows the community to gather and celebrate the town’s unique history and architectural character
  • Improvements include narrow drive lanes, a center median, parallel parking, wide tree-lined sidewalks, benches, pedestrian lighting and signage
  • Changes will slow traffic through the town center and provide a comfortable walking environment
