DOWNTOWN MARCELINE


Downtown Marceline is an organization that was formed under the auspices of the Missouri Main Street Connection
and the Main Street organization, a subsidiary of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.


Downtown Marceline is non-government and a 501c3 non-profit organization made up of concerned citizens volunteering
their time to the revitalization of historic downtown Marceline.

The Downtown marceline organization is following the Main Street Approach®, a comprehensive four point strategy
that is a proven method for downtown revitalization. Currently there are over 1,200 designated Main Street® communities in America.

Towns that use the Main Street ® principles as the basis for activities will see positive results: new businesses, streetscape
and infrastructure improvements, building restorations, festivals, and special events that celebrate local history and heritage,
positive attitudes, and renewed confidence in downtown.

Downtown Marceline follows the Main Street Four Point Approach® that requires Downtown Marceline to create four committees,
which implement and oversee each of the 4 Points.
The 4 points are: Economic Restructuring, Design, Promotion and Organization committees. The Downtown Marceline revitalization
is more than focusing on physical improvements alone or only on marketing efforts. We are more about a comprehensive
activity that addresses all of the historic district’s problems and opportunities in a unified way. The Main Street® philosophy
emphasizes an incremental, sustainable approach to downtown revitalization based on historic preservation and utilizing the
community’s unique elements. It is a comprehensive self-help process that builds on the total image of Downtown Marceline.
