CHENEY, WA -- Is Cheney primarily an agricultural, family, or college town? On June 25th we will be having a community conversation on the future of Cheney and our historic downtown. Community members are invited to participate and learn more about the Washington State Main Street Program in a presentation by the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation with the help of the Cheney Merchants Association.
A representative of the state organization will give a short overview of the Main Street Program, which helps communities develop strategies to stimulate long-term economic growth and pride in their historic downtown areas. There will be a question-and-answer segment, followed by a community involvement segment.
Since 1984, the Main Street Program has provided communities with access to resources, networking opportunities, and training to help them revitalize the economy, appearance and image of their downtown commercial districts. The program focuses on four transformation strategies: Economic Vitality, Design, Promotion, and Organization. Each community’s unique strategies are generated through meaningful community engagement and informed by an analysis of the district’s market position and can be tailored for specific industries or markets.
The presentation will take place at the City of Cheney City Hall Auditorium on June 25th, starting at 5 P.M. Refreshments and snacks will be provided by the Cheney Merchants Association.
