Main Street group kicks off new fundraising campaign

COLUMBUS — The Columbus Main Street organization is campaigning to raise money for economic development activities in the downtown area.

The Commercial Dispatch reports the campaign — called Main Street in Motion — will take place through September.

Money raised will go toward the planning of growth, diversification and preservation of the downtown historic district.

Jay Jordan, a member of the organization’s board, is leading the effort.

Individuals and businesses can make tax-deductible donations.

Among the organization’s priorities are reinstating a facade grant program, expanding downtown boundaries, developing a recruitment and retention plan for businesses and developing a brochure for residents and visitors.
