Litchfield Downtown Council to work with Minnesota Main Street on assessment
LITCHFIELD — The Litchfield Downtown Council has been designated as a Minnesota Main Street Program network community.
A downtown assessment will be conducted early in 2020.
Members of the Minnesota Main Street Program will be in Litchfield to meet with the steering committee, conduct interviews and focus groups, and engage the community in dialogue about the future of Litchfield's downtown. There will be a report with guided implementation steps after the assessment is completed.
The funds for the assessment are from a Blandin Foundation grant obtained by members of the Litchfield Downtown Council Inc.
The Litchfield Downtown Council formed in 2018 as a nonprofit focused on providing a successful downtown Litchfield business environment, organizing downtown events, preserving and protecting the historic downtown, and offering networking opportunities for members.
The Main Street program has a four-point approach to revitalizing downtowns: organization, promotion, design and economic vitality.
