SUNDAY CONVERSATION: Newark Mayor Jonathan Taylor talks growth, massive downtown overhaul

Downtown Newark is exploding with growth.

Mayor Jonathan Taylor says that growth and progress is happening thanks to perseverance of current, and past elected leaders. South Main Street has experienced the most-apparent visual overhaul. That project was worth more than $6 million, which was federally funded thanks to years of planning and studies. However, with the added bonus of overhauling the water and sewer infrastructure underneath South Main Street, total investment there is north of $11 million, according to Taylor.

It’s just a couple examples of the growth that’s happened in Newark.

This week’s Sunday Conversation is a one-on-one with Taylor, who has been serving Newark for several years now – learning more each day about the intricacies, and importance of good local government. He credits his success to his Village Board; and the high caliber staff who work for the Village.
