The 4 Point ApproachOrganization - This committee is charged with building consensusand cooperation among the many groups and individuals who have a role in the revitalization process. They work to market Main Street and its goals to the community and recruit new volunteers and members.
Promotion - Marketing downtown’s assets to customers, potential investors, new businesses, local citizens & visitors is the role of this committee. This group also works to market downtown as a “fun” and exciting place to visit and shop through annual events and retail promotions.
Design - This group works toward enhancing the physical appearance of downtown by capitalizing on its assets and heritage. Rehabilitating historic buildings, encouraging sensitive new construction, developing design management systems, and long-term planning fall under this committee.
Economic Restructuring - This committee works toward strengthening downtown’s economic base while finding ways to expand it to meet new opportunities for development. This group looks to improve retail mix, build a stronger tax base, and create a stable role for the downtown as a major component of the community’s economic health.
Because it is satisfying to do useful work that benefits downtown MMS and because volunteering offers many benefits and opportunities for the people who participate. People volunteer for a wide variety of reasons,especially wanting to help others. But it is OK and very natural to want some benefits for yourself from volunteering. Think of volunteering as an exchange.
What Do Volunteers Do?
Volunteers help us attain our goals and objectives. Main Street is always looking for volunteers, no
matter how big or small the contribution. If you are able to make phone calls to remind people about meetings or to check information, there’s a spot for you. If you are not able to attend regular meetings, but want to help, perhaps you have a few days a year to help run events.
Today you may be the person witjh the ability to help, but tomorrow you may be the recipient of
someone else’s volunteer effort. So if you are active in Main Street, your home or business is enhanced while you protect your neighbor’s home or business, too. Adding your effort to the work of Main Street makes everyone’s lives better.
Preservation is not about history it is about what we do today!
