The town of Dillsboro is the latest community to join the Indiana Main Street Program. The Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs says the designation will help a local partnership in the Dearborn County town create a vibrant downtown.
The Dillsboro Community Partnership, comprised of community members and local business leaders, says it aims to foster hometown pride, promote growth and support local businesses in an effort to strengthen quality of life in Dillsboro.
"We are thankful to have a strong core of civic organizations – the Dillsboro Civic Club, the Beautification Committee, the Ross Foundation, as well as very active churches, veterans’ organizations, and volunteer groups – which supports programs and activities in town," said Dillsboro Town Manager Seth Elder. "Our hope is that Dillsboro Community Partnership can help to coordinate, strengthen, and support our existing organizations in more comprehensive activities to develop and revitalize Dillsboro’s downtown area and business community through the Main Street Approach."
The Indiana Main Street Program, which includes nearly 120 communities, aims to encourage economic development, redevelopment and improvement to downtown areas in cities and towns throughout the state. You can learn more about the program by clicking here.
