Guthrie Center Main Street Meeting Held


July 20th, 2012 by admin

Guthrie Center is looking into the possibility of becoming a Main Street Community.

The Guthrie Center Times reports a meeting was held Tuesday at Guthrie Activity Center regarding the city becoming a Main Street Community.  About 100 citizens attended.  After the keynote speaker, Thom Guzman of the Iowa Department of Economic Development’s Main Street program spoke, it was decided that a committee would be formed.  The committee would be made of volunteers who would travel to other Main Street Communities and determine the pros and cons of membership

Mayor Denny Kunkle tells the Guthrie Center Times that anyone interested in serving on the committee should contact City Hall at 641-332-2190

Main Street is an Iowa program that includes 48 member communities across the state that aims to help towns restore and revitalize their business districts.
