Why Downtown is Important
• It is a reflection of community image, pride, prosperity, and level of investment
• It represents a significant portion of our tax base
• It is home to many local, independent businesses. They keep profits in town, and support our schools, charities, teams and other organizations
• It is our historic core, embodying our rich past and visual identity
• A healthy Main Street core protects property values in all our residential neighborhoods.
Join Us in Keeping Our History Alive
We are currently working with the Town to upgrade and restore Eno Memorial Hall, so that the countless community groups that use it will be able to continue to do so for many years to come. Eno is our Community Center and we’re committed to preserving it for future generations.
We’ve already accomplished:
• A Comprehensive Preservation Study for the entire building
• Fundraising and design of the five marble benches on the front terrace
• Moving the Veterans Memorial so that it is more prominently featured
• Helped oversee fire code upgrades to insure they were done in “character” of historic building designs
We’re still working on:
• Fundraising for two marble planters
• Fundraising to repair and restore the clock
• Interior repairs that will benefit other groups, including the Senior Center
