Jud McMillin (R-Brookville) met with business owners regarding Main Street construction in 2017.BROOKVILLE – State Representative Jud McMillin (R-Brookville) recently met with dozens of local business owners to discuss the proposed construction coming to Main Street U.S. 52 in 2017.Some owners previously expressed concerns regarding the subtraction of nearly sixty parking spots in front of businesses from 4th to 6th streets, according to the Brookville American-Democrat.They also voiced concern over the duration of the Indiana Department of Transportation project and the impact it would have on Main Street businesses.McMillin recently met with 37 community members to discuss ideas regarding the project.“We have 2 and a half years to plan for what is going to be a great opportunity for our community,” McMillin said.“Something like this is going to affect everyone on Main Street and everyone that comes through our Main Street. We were getting people together so we report back to INDOT through our town council as to what the town wants.”McMillin added that there was a collective resolution to work toward certain aspects of the project which could likely be presented to the Brookville Town-Council next week.Along with several business owners that attended the meeting, McMillin agrees that keeping the historical integrity of Brookville is highly important as well as easy access to businesses, including on-street parking and parking lots.“That was one of the big things that came out of the meeting that I think is great. We have a unified front to try and locate additional off-street parking so that parking could be created before the 2017 project starts,” McMillin said.“So for businesses to be successful we want to make sure we provide every possible opportunity for customers to get to businesses conveniently.”The proposed Main Street U.S. 52 project could likely span from Blue Creek Rd. near IGA to U.S. 52 going toward Metamora.last_img
