What is the Block Party?
The Town of Coaldale’s Main Street has been undergoing construction to deliver necessary upgrades to aging sanitary infrastructure and to provide visual and functional enhancements to the streetscape. The project has seen a number of added benefits in the way of pedestrian and road safety improvements, barrier-free design elements, and new street furniture to add an eclectic blend of traditional and modern aesthetic enhancements. To mark project completion, the Town of Coaldale and the Coaldale Chamber of Commerce are hosting a Block Party on Main Street to celebrate the grand opening of the new and improved Main Street.
