N. Main St. Gateway
Brief Description of the Subarea
This area is a primary entrance corridor to the community mostly comprised of vacant structures, overt slum and blight conditions, and marginal businesses. Neighborhood and general commercial uses once grew on the northern fringe of the town and eventually sprawled into the county toward the bypass. Established destination enterprises remain, the Golden Pantry and Main Street Vet.
As Eatonton Road emerged as the General Commercial Corridor, this area became less desirable for new commerce and backfill businesses.
Goals for the Subarea
There are two distinct character areas within the N. Main St. Gateway. Please reference the plan for more details regarding the goals, which may vary per character area. URP Section 3
