Main Street Elkader Committees

PROMOTIONS

Services focus on positioning the Main Street district as the center of the community and the hub of economic activity, while creating a positive image that showcases a community’s unique characteristics.

ORGANIZATION

Services focused on building strong, broad-based support in the form of human and financial resources and involving both the public and private sectors with a stake in the downtown revitalization initiative.  The grassroots, volunteer driven initiative is dependent upon stakeholder involvement, leadership development and empowerment, therefore primary focuses are fundraising, volunteer development and communications.

DESIGN

Services focused on enhancing the physical elements of downtown while capitalizing on the unique assets that set the district apart.  Using preservation-based strategies, Main Street encourages building reuse through appropriate rehabilitation and maintenance and provides education to help communities protect and manage their historic resources.

ECONOMIC Vitality

Services focused on strengthening and broadening the economic base of the Main Street district.  Improving the overall business climate within a designated Main Street district enhances the community’s existing economic assets while diversifying its economic base.
