    Chillicothe shares Main Street success stories with Lexington Committee members.

    The newly formed Steering Committee for Main Street Lexington is not wasting any time in gathering helpful data and ideas from cities that have demonstrated successful downtown redevelopment projects. On Friday, March 14th, a delegation of members from Main Street Lexington accompanied by Ward 1 City Councilman Harold Bonanomi visited the city of Chillicothe.

    “Chillicothe has achieved great success through the Main Street program – and we wanted to have a frank conversation with their folks to see what worked and what didn’t” said Chip Langman, Chair of the Lexington Main Street Steering Committee. “Our goal is not to reinvent the wheel, but to see how we can best integrate our efforts with the number of groups already doing great things in Lexington” Langman continued.

    During the visit, Steering Committee members from Lexington met with Chillicothe Main Street Board President Staci Baker and Executive Director Micah Landes. “They were very gracious and offered very helpful information that Main Street Lexington can digest and decide how to tailor to their own needs” stated Councilman Harold Bonanomi. Following the meeting, the visitors from Lexington were given a downtown walking tour of Chillicothe from Micah Landes and the history of various projects ranging from murals to building retrofits.

    Friday’s delegation from Lexington included Harold Bonanomi - Ward 1 City Councilman, Main Street Lexington Steering Committee members Chip Langman – Chair, Richard Chinnery – Vice Chair, Pandora Kuhnlein, Dee Gee Rivers, and community members Jim Kuhnlein and Sharon Langman.

    The Lexington Main Street Committee’s next public meeting will be Monday, March 24th at 5:00 PM in the Lexington City Council Chambers located at 919 Franklin Street.
