Main Street Chillicothe has received a $5,000 grant from the Livingston County Community Foundation to continue revitalization work in the Arts District in Downtown Chillicothe.
The revitalization on Locust Street from Clay to Ann streets focuses on art-based revitalization, such as creative crosswalks and sidewalks, trees, benches, flowers, signage, and lights.
Main Street Chillicothe Executive Director Ben White expressed appreciation to the Livingston County Community Foundation for its contribution towards the project.
Main Street Chillicothe has partnered with Lowe’s Home Improvement and the Cultural Corner Art Guild and Gallery for much of the work completed in the Arts District. The additional money will be used towards banners, flowers, and signage.
White says Main Street Chillicothe has already seen growth in the revitalization area and is excited to foster and cultivate additional growth in the future.
