A national organization will help seven Indiana Main Street communities strengthen their cores. National Main Street Center consultants will work with local leaders on identifying market conditions, gaps and opportunities as they look to grow their downtown districts.
The Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs is sponsoring the program, which will involve Angola, Beech Grove, Jasper, Madison, Peru, Terre Haute and Winamac. The two-day transformation workshops will take place this winter.
"All seven communities have demonstrated the effective implementation of the Main Street Four Point Approach," said OCRA Executive Director Jodi Golden in a release. “Our goal for each Main Street organization is to have a comprehensive plan to guide their efforts for the next three to five years.”
The Indiana Main Street Program encourages economic development, redevelopment and improvement to the downtown areas of cities and towns throughout the state. You can learn more about the program by clicking here.
