An Outstanding Partnership:
The City of The Dalles
& The Dalles Main Street
One of the guiding principles of Main Street® is forging a true public-private partnership focused on downtown revitalization. That is exactly what they achieved in The Dalles.
The results of this partnership can be seen throughout the downtown. Visitors and community members can now find parklets, wayfinding kiosks, bike racks, holiday lights, and other improvements. Several new businesses have opened, others have moved and expanded. Several facade projects have been recently completed and interiors are being renovated.
Many cities help launch local main street efforts, but in The Dalles, the City and local program continue to strengthen this relationship and work together to support on-going downtown revitalization.
