This Commission was created in 2010 to improve all aspects of the downtown and central business district. Improving economic management, strengthening public participation and making Moline a fun place to visit are as critical to our collective future as recruiting new businesses and rehabilitating buildings. The Commission is building on Moline’s inherent assets - rich architecture, personal service, and most of all, a sense of place. The Main Street approach seeks to rekindle entrepreneurship, downtown cooperation, and civic interest.
The National Main Street Program is a community-driven, comprehensive methodology used to revitalize older, traditional business districts throughout the United States. It is a common-sense way to address the variety of issues and problems that face them. The underlying premise of the Main Street approach is to encourage economic development within the context of historic preservation in ways appropriate to today’s marketplace. Main Street advocates a return to community self-reliance, local empowerment, and the rebuilding of traditional commercial districts based on their unique assets: distinctive architecture, a pedestrian-friendly environment, personal service, local ownership, and a sense of community.
The Moline Centre Main Street Program is administered by Renew Moline, Inc., in coordination with the City of Moline. For more information about Moline Centre, please visit www.molinecentre.org.
