Onward & Upward with Downtown
MPA Offers Revitalization Strategies in Four Rural Downtowns
As the leaves turned red and orange and fall winds blew in, MPA was busy traveling to meetings in White Sulphur Springs, Townsend, Augusta, and East Helena. Each meeting was well attended by interested community members, offering enthusiastic input and brilliant ideas regarding downtown historic preservation and revitalization needs in each town. From all that helpful input, MPA will focus on select buildings in each community, work with owners, and move forward with providing preservation options. Support from the Steele-Reese Foundation will make it possible for us to visit these communities with guest speakers on preservation finances and heritage tourism in the early part of 2019.
