Developed in partnership with The Dalles High School Welding Class, Iron Works, and others; several bike racks have been designed and are in the process of being fabricated. Look for these to be installed downtown this spring!
Three racks have been sponsored by LRS Architects and Hire Electric and more are on the way through funds donated at Main Street Uncorked, Taste of Downtown Fundraiser!
With installation planned this spring, 3 wayfindage kiosks will be placed along 2nd St. Updated quarterly, these kiosks will have a map of the downtown with retail, restaurant, and other community/tourist interested businesses lists as well as historic images from our downtown. They will promote a walk-able downtown experience that showcase all that we have to offer!
Main Street is also an ideal organization to give to due to our membership with the Oregon Cultural Trust (OCT).
In a nut shell, if you give $500.00 to Main Street AND you give $500.00 to the OCT, your donation to Main Street is tax deductible and your donation to the OCT is a tax CREDIT.
You must give to both Main Street and the OCT to get the tax credit, but even just donating to Main Street gets you the deduction.
A tax DEDUCTION reduces the amount of taxable income while a tax CREDIT reduces the amount of tax you owe.
The, "Why Shop Downtown The Dalles" video campaign won, "Best Marketing Project" from Oregon Main Street in 2015. This campaign highlights downtown businesses and gives you plenty of reasons to come and enjoy everything we have downtown!
