The long-awaited and much-needed widening and street improvements in the area of Main Street will begin in late September or early October. Updates on the duration of the project will be sent as they are received from the Village of Greenport. 

This project will result in much safer vehicle navigation and create new curbs, handicapped access, vegetation areas and water management zones. It will also revamp the parking access and flow of the Adams Street parking lot with increased safety and no net loss of parking spots. (Links to several of the plans are listed below.)

The village is working closely with the contractor to insure as little disruption as possible with detouring traffic patterns kept to minimum whenever possible. 

But let’s face it, there is going to be disruption for a period of time until this significant project is completed and Main Street gets its facelift. 

So please be patient, plan for the limited disruption of normal, day-to-day operations and embrace working together as a team wherever we can to make this part of the Business District better.

The Business Improvement District (BID) is pleased to announce that in conjunction with the Village of Greenport, new trash cans that are aesthetically more pleasing and represent a unification of style have been installed throughout the downtown BID area.

The challenge and goal of keeping the streets and sidewalks in front of your business clean are extremely important to the BID and we are working closely with the Village to insure that these cans are serviced and emptied on a regular basis.

The BID asks that we all work as a team in helping in this process and would further ask that you alert the Village Administrator or your closest BID Board Member if you see problem locations or issues in our collective effort to achieve the goal of keeping Downtown Greenport Clean.
