Broadway Central to Feature Festive Atmosphere

In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, changes in current business operations, and positive feedback from business owners and residents, Broadway Street between Main and University Streets will once again be closed for restaurant and merchant use. This closure will take place from May 1 – October 17, 2021.

This year, “Broadway Central” will feature additional picnic tables and umbrellas and visitors will be able to utilize the space in a variety of ways. To assist in easy, social-distancing ordering and food delivery, QR codes will link to downtown restaurant menus.

The Saturday Farmers’ Market as well as Art Reach’s Paint the Intersection are just a few of the activities planned to take place in this new, festive space.

More information and offerings will be shared in the near future. If you have questions, please contact Michelle Sponseller, Downtown Development Director at or (989) 779-5348.
