Welcome to Main Street Waterbury. It’s springtime and time for a good spring-cleaning especially downtown! If I sound like a broken record on litter issues…. so be it.

Welcome to Main Street Waterbury. It's August and you might say we're in the dog days of summer. Despite the heat and humidity, a lot of great things have been happening downtown. First let me comment as a follow-up to my July column and my comments regarding litter prevention for downtown Waterbury. Here's an update. I'm pleased to say that thanks to the efforts of the Litter and Beautification Commission and Mike Ptak, the Waterbury Police can now issue tickets to litter bugs. The fine is $100. This applies citywide.
Welcome to Main Street Waterbury. It's summertime in the Brass City. That means more people out and about in Downtown Waterbury.

Hello and welcome to Main Street Waterbury in March 2006 and all the “madness” that goes along with it.

Welcome to Main Street Waterbury. Now that we're in the midst of autumn and the leaves have all but fallen, our thoughts are turning to the holiday season and the end of 2004. Although the colder months are vastly approaching, the work of Downtown Waterbury revitalization continues.
In my September column I touched upon two more of Main Street's eight principles for successful revitalization. They were Focusing on Existing Assets and Self-Help. For this issue I would like to cover the final two of the Eight principles, Incremental and Implementation Orientated.
