The Design Committee plays a key role in shaping the physical image of downtown Monticello as a place attractive to shoppers, investors, business owners and visitors. This is accomplished by capitalizing on our best assets, such as historic preservation, a traditional downtown layout and creating an inviting atmosphere through window displays, parking areas, signs, sidewalks, street lights, and landscaping. Its aim is to convey a visual message about what Monticello is and what it has to offer. To receive free design consultation, Click Here.
