As of January 1, 2019, Main Street Grundy Center merged with the Grundy Center Chamber of Commerce. This merger is about building collective capacity. The new organizational structure creates a partnership that benefits Chamber members and Main Street investors, from marketing opportunities to a unified and consistent voice in business and community development.
As a designated Main Street Community, we will continue to focus on economic development through historic preservation in the downtown district through the nationally recognized Four- Point Approach - Design, Organization, Promotion, and Economic Vitality.
As a merged organization, we will also provide valuable services to businesses beyond the downtown district.
By working together toward shared goals, we are better positioned to focus energy and resources for the benefit of our community, and eliminate overlapping agendas and service areas. Collaboration will provide better clarity and a sharper focus on quality growth and development, allowing creative thinkers to work on progressive solutions while enhancing the unique character of our community.
There has never been a better time to be involved and invest in the Chamber and Main Street! By working together, we will have a greater impact to improve the overall economy and quality of life in Grundy Center and in the region.
