Colorado DOLA - Main Street Communities
- Colorado Division of Local Government
- The Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) manages the Colorado Main Street program, which is partially funded by a grant from History Colorado, the State Historical Fund. The mission of the Colorado Main Street program is to coordinate resources and technical assistance for communities seeking to revitalize their historic downtown commercial districts based on their unique needs. Colorado was selected by the National Main Street Center for a state pilot Main Street project from 1982 – 1985. Delta, Durango, Grand Junction, Manitou Springs and Sterling were Colorado's Main Street communities in the initial program. The Colorado Department of Local Affairs administered this three-year pilot program. Although the Main Street approach to downtown revitalization proved very successful in Colorado, the state discontinued the program after completing the three-year pilot project. Several communities continued to implement Main Street and downtown revitalization programs without the benefit of a statewide coordinating program, while other local programs were discontinued. Between 2000 and 2010, Downtown Colorado Inc. administered the Colorado Main Street program with a grant from the State Historical Fund of The Colorado Historical Society. This dataset displays communities in the participating in the project.
