On Oct. 11 Auburn Main Street celebrated years of work on downtown revitalization with a ribbon cutting on the project that started it all. The project centered on the intersection of 6th and Main streets in downtown Auburn as a pedestrian hub for shopping, dining and entertainment. The project was funded in collaboration with the city of Auburn, Indiana’s Office of Community and Rural Affairs, The James Foundation, DeKalb County Soil and Water and the Community Foundation of DeKalb County. The project includes new sidewalks, curbs, benches and bike racks, and also utilizes plants that are native to Indiana. It was attended by Indiana’s Lt. Governor, Suzanne Crouch and Indiana’s Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA) Executive Director, Jodi Golden. Visitors also got a sneak peek into Auburn’s newest downtown destination, The Auburn Brewing Company, set to open this month.
