Downtown Genoa braces for a surge of activity
GENOA – For the first time in years, there soon will be major construction under way in downtown Genoa. Genoa Main Street Inc., the city, the Genoa Public Library and private businesses are making changes that promise to keep downtown in the spotlight for some time to come.
The new construction comes courtesy of the Genoa Public Library, which purchased the lot next to its current building at 232 W. Main St. The structure on the lot was demolished to break ground in the spring for a building expansion.
“The new wing will allow us to meet the growing needs of Genoa residents while remaining downtown,” library director Jen Barton said. “In addition to housing more books and resources for library users, the library is an important part of the downtown business community, generating foot traffic and space for activities and meetings.”
