Main Street Marion

Serv­ing Down­town Marion

Main Street Mar­i­on has been serv­ing the down­town com­mu­ni­ty since 1989.

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 vital­i­ty. Main Street Mar­i­on 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. Most impor­tant­ly, Main Street Mar­i­on pairs with the City of Mar­i­on and oth­er team play­ers to apply for grants main­ly through Indi­ana’s Office of Com­mu­ni­ty and Rur­al Affairs. These grant dol­lars keep the cog wheels turn­ing to gen­er­ate revi­tal­iza­tion, new devel­op­ment, rede­vel­op­ment, restora­tion, and beau­ti­fi­ca­tion in the Down­town dis­trict which, in turn, yield a healthy econ­o­my & qual­i­ty of life.

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. They pro­vide a tool on their web­site of the most up-to-date avail­able spaces. This tool may be found here: https://​main​street​mar​i​on​.com/b….
