  • Marketing & Wayfinding

    Our MainStreet Paris program identified wayfinding into the downtown as paramount to the continued success and prosperity of our downtown. Currently, there are no directional vehicular or pedestrian signs pointing visitors and stakeholders like to identify and travel to/within our downtown. We are currently working on our system of signage to guide visitors and stakeholders to key destinations, parking options, trails, amenities and recreational options.

  • Flower Basket Program

    In an amazing array of colors, the downtown flower basket programs brings the area to life.  Hanging baskets are placed throughout downtown Paris and create an atmosphere of beauty and class.  This program is funded by the City of Paris and maintained by the city employees. 

  • DOWNTOWN CLEAN UP

    Keep Paris Beautiful, Paris Main Street, Paris students , community volunteers and Paris Merchants Association  collaborate to do an annual spring cleaning in the central district business. Kids and staff sweep, rake and pick up garbage that has accumulated over the winter in parking lots, sidewalks and along buildings. Painting of murals or buildings to revitalize the downtown is key in keeping Paris beautiful.
