Jeanne Stinson, the director of Kansas Main Street, spoke to a group of local business owners and residents Tuesday about the program.The program is run by the Kansas Department of Commerce and Housing.The Main Street program seeks to revitalize the downtown areas of cities with a population of 50,000 or fewer.Peabody already has the program in place.The program tries to encourage new businesses to open downtown, while looking for ways that current ones can improve."We have to understand what we're doing, how we're doing it, and who we're trying to reach," Stinson said.Main Street uses a four-point approach to attract people downtown, Stinson said.The first point is organization -- realizing that such a project takes lots of volunteers, manpower, and -- realistically -- money, Stinson said.Second, a successful project requires good design.Visual impact is important when drawing in customers as well as retailers.Good design encompasses many areas, from attractive streets and sidewalks outside to smart product placement inside stores, she said.Third, the downtown area needs promotion.You've got to show people what you have and re-introduce them to things they might have already known about, Stinson said.Finally, the program is about economic restructuring.The program seeks to help current businesses, but also ready vacant buildings for potential businesses."We need to make sure that we're ready to invite new businesses in," Stinson said.Stinson also stressed the need for local businesses, no matter how small, to find a home on the World Wide Web.Many small businesses across Kansas make huge profits by selling inventory on Web sites, she said.The application process to become a Main Street city begins in March.Interested cities must attend an application workshop.The application is due in June.But they're not through yet.Potential cities must then make a presentation to a Main Street committee in the middle of June.This will be the city's final input in the decision-making process.
Cities will be notified by the first week of July if they've been accepted, Stinson said.Two cities will be selected in the year 2002.The number of cities that apply varies every year, she said.Last year, 13 cities applied, and two were accepted.Currently, there are 22 Kansas cities in the program.But if a city is accepted into the Main Street program, it's not just about grant money, Stinson said.It's about giving motivated communities the skills they need to take charge and take action for specific needs."We're trying to give you a tool box, and we're trying to fill that tool box as full as we can," Stinson said.
