Main Street Partners with American Small Business Development Center

Main Street Holiday Lighting

Birdhouse Library Graces Weeden Park
Thanks to the efforts of former Executive Director Art Shonheiter, with assistance from Bill Schroeder, visitors to Weeden Park will find this wonderful feature. Styled like a large "birdhouse," it is designed for people to leave a book they have read. Another neighbor may borrow the book, and leave one to replace it. It's just another thing that makes Lawrenceville a very supportive and special place. Art got the idea from Main Street supporter Marge Dwyer. Way to go!
Weeden Park Gazebo Dedicated to Art Schonheiter
July 2012. Lawrenceville Main Street President Howard Nelson announced at a recent Music in the Park that the gazebo which occupies a central place for our Weeden Park events has been dedicated in honor of retired LMS Executive Director Art Schonheiter for his years of service to the Lawrenceville community.
Art and his gracious wife Pina are seen above, as they so often are at our events. Thanks Art, for your leadership and hard work that have made Lawrenceville a better place to live!

Main Street Streetscape Project Completed
Lawrence Township has concluded a $201,782 contract for decorative streetlights and sidewalks, benches and bicycle racks in the historic Main Street area. Work included new sidewalks and driveway aprons affecting Main Street and adjacent parts of other roads.
New street lamps were turned on, brightening the village area. This work was enabled by a $275,000 Federal grant administred through the state Department of Transportation. Main Street and municipal initiatives were essential to planning this. This follows the repaving of Main Street completed earlier.
