Making Historic Downtown Elyria the Vibrant Heart of the City!
Main Street is a not for-profit organization dedicated to preserving and revitalizing Elyria's downtown district. Each small success is added to the mission of Main Street to create overall growth and renewal.
The committees meet on a monthly basis to complete annual work plans, which are created to guide activities and provide a yardstick for measuring the success of the organization. The Board of Directors is responsible for developing a budget for each work plan. Main Street's success is based on a comprehensive strategy of work in four areas:
Organization- This committee is charged with building consensus and 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 and visitors is the main role of this committee. This group also works to market the 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 projects are carried out by Design.
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 at ways 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.
