More than a year after a group of residents walked through downtown Greenwood, noting crumbling sidewalks, uneven ramps and faded crosswalk lines, the first project they suggested is being done.

Members of Restore Old Town Greenwood, a downtown revitalization group, walked along Main Street last year looking for ways to make the area more pedestrian friendly. They asked the city to make multiple improvements, including updating sidewalks and crosswalks and moving a sign that was low enough to bump a person’s head. The sign got moved, and this summer the city is planning to paint fresh crosswalk stripes and put in new curb ramps for wheelchairs, strollers, and motor scooters at Brewer and Main streets.
