MAINSTREET SUPPORTERS HEAR STATE PRESENTATION
Closer and closer to a MainStreet resurgence in Port Huron. Organizer Leroy Stevens says meetings held Tuesday with a representative from the state-based MainStreet organization served to give more business leaders and downtown supporters a better idea of what the organization is all about. The meeting expanded the base of interest, according to Stevens. Next week those interested are to meet again to formally decide whether to head in the direction of MainStreet which serves to promote and preserve historic downtowns. There are about forty MainStreet cities under the Michigan banner. City Hall has suggested the move from the past downtown organization and the Witts, who own several buildings downtown, have donated space at 219 Huron for the organization’s offices. The program has four main points surrounding design, economic restructuring, promotion, and organization.
