In his book, “Walkable City” Jeff Speck, one of the leading city planners in the country, concludes his book; “The downtown is the only part of the city that belongs to everybody. It doesn’t matter where you may find your home; the downtown is yours, too. Investing in the downtown of a city is the only place-based way to benefit all of its citizens at once. . . . Every relocation decision, be it a college graduate’s or a corporation’s, is made with an image of place in mind. . . . And, with rare exception, that image is downtown.”
The purpose of the Main Street program is to encourage economic revitalization through historic preservation. We are affiliated with the National Trust for Historic Perseveration’s Main Street Center through the Nebraska Main Street Network program.
Please consider coming alongside the efforts of Main Street Kearney, our board, and our committee members as we work toward our goals of economic revitalization through historic preservation and a strong and vibrant downtown business district.
We encourage you to be a part of the future of downtown Kearney. Main Street Kearney is an independent non-profit organization, and needs your support to help downtown Kearney reach its full potential.
