Thanks to an e-mail from a Dorchester Times reader, we have been made aware of an upcoming forum dedicated to the renovation of small town main streets across the state.
On Wednesday, Oct. 21, from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at UNL's Nebraska Union Room, a forum will be held to discuss successful revitalization efforts of traditional downtown business districts in Nebraska communities.
We are told that the Nebraska Main Street Program provides direction, education, information resources and hands-on technical assistance to communities statewide. Attendees will learn about the Main Street Program and engage in conversations with other community leaders about the challenges and opportunities that exist in Nebraska's downtown business districts.
This session is open to anyone -- regardless of whether you hold elected office.
Business and property owners, community leaders and volunteers who are interested in revitalizing their downtown business districts are encouraged to attend.
