Want to Learn About the Main Street Program?

Over the past 10 months, we have been collecting names of people who were interested in learning more about the Main Street program wherever we made presentations or set up information booths at the Farmers Market and other events. Thank you to all of you who have shown interest! Now that we are a Selected Michigan Main Street community, it is time to get the program started.

The Michigan Main Street staff will be here on Monday, May 7th at 7 PM for a Main Street information night. The meeting will be held at the Saline Middle School media center. Please join us to learn about the Main Street Four-Point Approach and all of the volunteer opportunities available. We will have information you can take home and applications available to be part of the Saline Main Street team.

Please share this with your friends. A successful Main Street program depends on a strong volunteer program and we are hoping that this will be a great start!

Hope to see you there!

About Route '12 to Main Street

Route '12 to Main Street is sponsored by the Saline Historic Downtown Alliance (SHDA), a new non-profit entity focused on the revitalization of Downtown Saline for the benefit of the entire community. SHDA, with the support of the City of Saline and the EDC, is applying to become a Main Street community through the Michigan Main Street Center. It is a competitive process and over the next seven months, volunteers are working hard to prepare for the application process by educating the community, recruiting volunteers and gaining support. Benefits to become a 'Selected' Main Street community through the Michigan Main Street Center program are 5 years of technical training, design services, and increased public awareness for our community. Benefits of having a comprehensive Downtown revitalization strategy are even more, and we will be talking about these advantages in upcoming blogs.
