Who We Are
Main Street Dodge City is a 501(c)(6) non-profit organization that provides resources & support to downtown businesses and property owners in the preservation and revitalization of historic buildings.
Through our network of members and community partners, we present a powerful voice for our historic downtown. While maintaining a comprehensive downtown revitalization strategy following the Main Street Four-Point Approach structure-which includes implementing a balance of activities in the areas of organization, promotion, design and economic development- we work to maintain and develop a positive, coordinated image of downtown. We work on promoting, defending and preserving our downtown: it’s culture, history, people, and local businesses.
More specifically, to reinforce and market a positive image and lively atmosphere, we strive to create excitement in downtown through our various promotional events during the year. We help improve the downtown landscaping, aid in providing design services for buildings and review renovation proposals for downtown buildings. Main Street Dodge City also organizes and promotes constructive relationships between local government bodies, private businesses and residents. In addition, Main Street helps recruit new businesses to minimize the effects of vacancies and to diversify the mix of retail, services, entertainment, housing and restaurants within the downtown corridor.
Overall, we advocate for local empowerment, consensus building, appealing downtown aesthetic design, economic vitality, historic preservation, supportive public policy, and a family-oriented place where everyone can feel proud to call home and passionately show off to visitors.
