If you need a place to sit after shopping along Commercial Street, you have some new options now.
Emporia Main Street partnered with Amish Woodworking and BLI Rentals to bring several new benches to downtown.
“We were able to obtain four benches which have zero maintenance,” Main Street Director Casey Woods said.
Woods says a study done by BG Consultants and AMAIR Architecture showed a high demand for benches. The new sit-down spots are located in the 500, 600 and 700 blocks of Commercial along with the Farmers Market parking lot near the kiosk.
