Economic Development

The investment in our downtown that is made possible by the Stellar Communities funding gives us a unique opportunity to refocus and renew our commitment to helping create the Midwest’s next great college town. To that end, Greencastle is forming an ad-hoc committee to reinvigorate our Main Street Program.

This will:

• Explore best practices in Main Street communities that will mesh with our vision for Greencastle

• Creatively adapt to the Main Street Program’s four-point approach of organization, design, promotion and economic restructuring

• Ultimately lead to the redevelopment of the Central Business District, which will boost the City’s job growth and economic development efforts
