“In a city the street must be supreme. It is the first institution of the city. The street is a room by agreement, a community room, the walls of which belong to the donors, dedicated to the city for common use. Its ceiling is the sky.”

- Louis I. Kahn

The traditional "main street" through the middle of town has lost its charm in the past few decades.  They all have unique characteristics, but all share the important role of contributing to the health and quality of life of its local residents and visitors.  

These streets can be seen as the backbone of a neighborhood - with a weak and abandoned streetscape, the neighborhood will be affected as well.  But a healthy and vibrant main street, in turn, will contribute to the livability of the surrounding neighborhoods.
