Berryville receives Virginia funds for Main St. improvements

Governor Glenn Youngkin announced by email that 16 communities will receive a portion of more than $257,000 in Virginia Main Street grants.

The funds are to help communities revitalize historic commercial districts, expand small businesses and bolster local economies through new technology and improved marketing.

Berryville Virginia will receive $7,000 of the funding for their alley revitalization project.

The funds will help Berryville revitalize the alleyway connecting Main Street to a frequently used parking lot and businesses.

The improvements will include cleaning and painting the pavement and the addition of three park benches.

Barriers will be removed and aesthetic planters will be added.

Increased foot traffic is expected as accessibility is improved and aesthetic appeal is added.
