Main Street Markham Committee
Markham is working to make Main Street Markham a better place. Markham Council has created the Main Street Markham (MSM) Committee - a committee of residents, business owners, heritage advocates, environmentalists, and Councillors interested in conserving and enhancing Markham Village.
The Committee prepared a Main Street Vision Plan [PDF] in 1999. This document builds on the work of previous studies and plans, and includes contemporary ideas of community members. Some of the great ideas include:
- recreating a pedestrian friendly village with its mix of homes and businesses stretching from Anderson Avenue in the north to Vinegar Hill in the south
- more trees and entrance features
- traffic calming measures and narrowing Main Street
- distinct furniture and signage
- creating a public square
