Vine Street District Council Receives Revitalization Grant

contact: Gayla Roten, 417-334-3014

Vine Street District Council will receive a grant for training, mentoring and technical services to conduct a revitalization program based on the Four-Point Main Street strategy for commercial historic districts. The first phase will begin December 19, when the grantor, Missouri Main Street Connection, Inc. meets with the Council's Board of Directors and interested persons in the community to evaluate current and future economic needs, using as a foundation the District Economic Development Plan formulated in July 2010. The Council and Missouri Main Street Connection will then design a series of customized training sessions for the Board of Directors and working committees that will enable the Council to concentrate on revitalization goals within the next two years. The goal of the grant is to develop a sustainable, volunteer-based local organization to carry out an economic development program which also recognizes the importance of continuing preservation of the district's historic assets and cultural heritage. More details about the December 19th meeting will be availalbe soon from Erika Brice. Details about the grant and the Missouri Main Street revitalization programs are available from Gayla Roten, 417-334-3014.
