The City of Taylorville is submitting an application for funding through the Rebuild Downtown & Main Streets Capital Grant program administered by the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) for the purpose of improving commercial areas that have experienced disinvestment, particularly in communities hardest hit by the COVID-19 public health and economic crisis. 

Proposed improvements to the downtown area will make it more accessible to and enhance the safety of all citizens of Taylorville and visitors to Taylorville.  These proposed improvements include:

  • ADA access to all commercial properties
  • Pedestrian friendly streetscapes encouraging visitors to spend time in the commercial area
  • Bicycle racks encouraging alternative type transportation to the commercial area
  • Benches allowing visitors to rest and congregate
  • Improved lighting in the pedestrian and vehicle travel corridors
  • Provide defined pedestrian crosswalks

Community support is an important part of the application, so please sign this petition to help make Taylorville's downtown area a more accessible and safer place for all!
