The active board and its array of volunteer committees work to promote and stimulate Marion’s downtown economy through a nationally formulated four-point approach system: design, organization, promotion, and economic restructuring. MSM reminds us that downtown is our center of culture, history, and Marion’s true identity.
You’ll find that a lot of activity downtown is generated through Main Street Marion. From pop-up shops, galleries and cafes to live music, parties and contests, they put their passion for downtown in action all year round. Main Street Marion initiates clean-up efforts, beautification projects, and other programming aimed to build and sustain the downtown community.
As part of their overall mission, they serve as a resource for current and prospective downtown businesses, and conduct projects to market available downtown buildings and spaces.
