The Downtown District Revitalization

Dansville’s downtown district has embarked on significant changes over the past few years. Our buildings have seen new life with an emphasis on their historic relavance. Significant investment in the development of commercial and residential properties have resulted. Our community is beginning to once again thrive with the investment of public and private resources and the dedication of the business owners, community members & the Dansville Area Chamber of Commerce.
Our Main Street businesses worked tirelessly to acquire grants for the revitalizion of our downtown through both commercial & residential improvements such as façade renovations, interior commercial and residential building upgrades and enhancement to the streetscape. Business & community members have adopted plots of land for continued beautification through out each of the seasons. When you walk along our Main Street, you can feel the pride and see the magnificent history that has created our community.
