Mission Statement

Our Vision Statement: Colfax will soon be known for its old time charm in a modern day world. The heart of the city will be a vibrant area, restored in a manner that preserves its historic character and architecture. The storefronts will be filled with healthy, sustainable business. The economic growth will create jobs and stable businesses that will help build the tax base. Community pride in downtown will be evident in its clean, attractive and well kept appearance. Filled with an upbeat, eclectic mix of shops and services, the town will be alive as a destination for residents of all ages, visitors and heritage tourists.

Description

Colfax Main Street, Inc. (Colfax Main Street) is part of the Main Street Iowa Program with the Iowa Department of Economic Development. The Main Street Iowa Program was created to improve the social and economic well-being of Iowa's communities by assisting selected communities to capitalize on the unique identity, assets and character of their historic commercial district. This economic development is centered around historic preservation.

Colfax became a Main Street Iowa Community on May 18, 2009. The Colfax Economic Development Commission, the Colfax Chamber of Commerce, the Colfax Visioning Committee, and the Take Pride Where You Reside Committee combined to form Colfax Main Street.

Colfax Main Street is modeled after the National Main Street Program through the National Trust for Historic Preservations with a Main Street Board, a paid director and committees of volunteers established to implement the Four Point Approach
