Indiana Main Street encourages the revitalization and restoration of downtown areas in Indiana cities and towns. The program provides technical assistance and educational opportunities to participating communities. Indiana Main Street is the state's coordinating program to the National Main Street Center.
OCRA is sponsoring a series of Community Exchanges on the last Wednesday of the month during July, August, September, October and November in 2016.The purpose of the Community Exchanges is to allow Indiana Main Street communities and others to network and learn from one another. The exchanges will give communities an opportunity to discuss local issues, ways others have resolved some of those issues, and innovative tactics Main Street communities are employing to address the needs of their organization, community, and downtown areas.
The following Indiana Main Street organizations will host an exchange in their communities:
* July 27: Knightstown (Henry County)
* August 31: Frankton (Clinton County)
* September 28: Roachdale (Putnam County)
* October 26: Greensburg (Decatur County)
* November 30: Special Holiday Edition
* The Holiday Edition will provide communities with the opportunity to kick off the holiday season with new information at a festive event taking place in one of Indiana's Main Street communities. Any IMS community interested in hosting the event should reach out to their OCRA Community Liaison.
Attendees do not need to be members of a Main Street organization. Elected officials and other leaders are welcome. For more information or to register, please visit: http://www.in.gov/ocra/2506.htm. Information will be continuously updated, so check back often.
