In 2012, the Main Street along with other community partners, created a downtown revitalization plan. The plan outlines recommended goals and objectives for MS and the town. That plan can be viewed via the following links (it is a large file and so has been broken up into sections) section 1, section 2, section 3.
We welcome new members and those who are interested in creating a vibrant and growing community. We would appreciate your input and ideas, take our survey! And Join us at our monthly meetings!
The Remington Main Street organization falls under the umbrella of RWCDC. The Main Streets were formed through the Office of Community and Rural Affair's Indiana Main Street program. Indiana Main Street encourages community-driven revitalization of downtown areas in Indiana cities and towns. The people who make up the Main Street network are passionate advocates, dedicated volunteers, influential stakeholders, and community organizers who work every day to turn the tide in their communities - catalyzing reinvestment, creating jobs, and fostering pride of place.
Main Street-style transformation is a combination of art and science: communities first need to learn about the local economy, its primary drivers, and its regional context (the science), but they also need to convey that special sense of place through storytelling, preserving the older and historic structures that set it apart, broad and inclusive civic engagement, and marketing (the art). To support this powerful network, the National Main Street Center has a revitalization framework – the Main Street Approach - that helps communities leverage both the art and science of downtown revitalization to create a better quality of life for all.
The program provides technical assistance and educational opportunities to participating communities. Indiana Main Street is the state's coordinating program to the National Main Street Center.
