A Feb. 25 conference call with representatives from the Benjamin Moore Paint Co. brought a change in the previously reported painting schedule for Main Street.

The new schedule begins the painting project around June 2 with completion scheduled about June 17. Another change is the elimination of a kickoff event in favor of a more significant reveal celebration on Saturday, June 21, from 4-7 p.m.
Due to changes in the date of the reveal celebration, the “MayBe Parade” will not be combined with it. Instead, the “MayBe Parade” will be combined with the May 17 Third Saturday Art Walk on Main Street sidewalks and around the area of the Bell Tower.
A Benjamin Moore project representative will meet with business and property owners in April to review and coordinate the color palette for the project and discuss other details pertaining to it.
A community meeting to discuss proposed projects to augment the painting to revitalize Main Street will be held 7-9 p.m. on March 24 at the El Dorado County Office of Education, room B-2.
