What Would You Do With An Empty Lot?
The legacy of the former bank building on Main Street in Walnut may be ending, but the potential for this prime location is just beginning.
The Walnut Village Board voted May 1 to demolish the current structure on the corner of Liberty and Main Streets. Now the focus turns to the future, with the Village of Walnut Local Improvements Committee leading efforts to gather ideas from the public that promise long-term community benefits.
A brief two-question survey about the property is scheduled for delivery to all households the week of May 21. Results from the survey will be reviewed and included on the committee’s agenda for a public meeting being held at 7 p.m. June 11 in the Walnut Community Building.
A detailed meeting agenda will be announced closer to the meeting date. Topics likely to be included are: committee member introductions, project status updates, grant effort details and open discussion.
Those interested in helping develop the future of Main Street Walnut are encouraged to complete the survey and attend the upcoming public meeting.
