Canandaigua Main Street Project Completed
The Canandaigua City Streetscape project will rehabilitate and re-landscape the three-block long downtown central business district of the City of Canandaigua. This project will enhance the aesthetics of the downtown area as well as promote and facilitate Green Infrastructure practices by collecting, and treating run-off. The project spurs innovation through adoption of new technologies, sustainable development and green practices which all contribute to protecting and treating storm water runoff in the Canandaigua Lake Watershed. See the WHAM-13 report featuring this project.
