Going, going, gone – Your last chance to own a piece of Main Street!

Last year, Rochester’s Main Street Makeover created quite a buzz in the Metro Detroit area and around the state.  The community was provided with the unprecedented opportunity to own a piece of Main Street through the purchase of items salvaged from the Main Street Makeover.

Downtown Yard SaleBy popular demand, we are re-opening the yard and offering one last chance for anyone who would like to own a piece of Rochester.  The Downtown Yard Sale will be held on Saturday, October 5 from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The sale will include all items removed from Main Street as a part of the Makeover including fire hydrants, lightpoles, parking meters, signs, Main Street bricks and much more!  The sale will be held at the Municipal Training Center, off Letica Drive.  Follow the bright yellow signs throughout downtown.

We are also partnering with the Rochester Police Department and will have a variety of found and/or unclaimed bicycles for sale. Bikes will be grouped into affordable price groups based on condition and will be available for purchase for $20 – $100.

If you are interested in purchasing a large quantity of the Main Street Bricks and Sidewalk Pavers, please contact the Rochester DDA at (248) 656-0060 or email Kristi@DowntownRochesterMI.com.

The Main Street Makeover was a joint effort of the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), the City of Rochester and the Rochester Downtown Development Authority (DDA).  The purpose of the project was to reconstruct Main Street from the Clinton River Bridge to the Paint Creek Bridge, improve water service to the area and to add streetscape improvements to enhance the overall downtown experience.
