Earlier this year, with the help of donations from local businesses, organizations, and individuals, the City of Monessen replaced the wooden planter boxes Downtown, which had rotten wood, and had been an eyesore for several years, with new stone planter boxes. Recently, the City was able to replace a nearly two-block long stretch of sidewalk in the heart of Downtown. The sidewalk had not been replaced since 1976. Similar to the beautification efforts in the City's parks, the City is now seeking donations for permanent benches, bike racks, and garbage cans to be installed in the City's Downtown District.


Downtown Monessen Makes Some Cosmetic Upgrades

"I’m excited about the new look for the Downtown District,” said Monessen Mayor Matt Shorraw. “With more people looking to Monessen to live and invest in, it has been my ongoing priority to find ways to help improve the look of our Downtown, in order to attract businesses and investors and help improve existing businesses. This small project has been a long time coming, and I'm excited to finally see it completed."

Mayor Shorraw says that there has been an increased interest in Monessen real estate this year, and several production companies are looking at filming in Downtown Monessen in the near future.

Anyone wishing to donate a bench, garbage can, or bike rack can contact Monessen City Hall.
