The Design Committee has been annually choosing one larger rehab/renovation project on Main Street that will enhance the town. In 2016 they upgraded 203-209 Main Street and provided a much improved visual “gateway” to Boonton’s Lower Main Street. In 2017 they relocated the kiosk from the boardwalk to the Post Office Plaza and created a parklet by adding additional seating. Their 2018 project is the rehab/renovate of the Canalside Park Overlook. One of the reasons people move to Boonton and love the town is because of it’s walkability and sense of community. As it stands now, there are limited places to sit and relax or chat, etc when you are walking that long stretch along upper Main Street above Canalside Park, and in their current condition those limited places are drab, uninviting, and underutilized. What we are proposing for the Canalside Park Overlook specifically would change that and also create another attractive 'gateway', this time to Boonton’s Upper Main Street.
