Knox Looking At Main Street Designation

The City of Knox is asking downtown business owners for their help in getting a Main Street designation. Mayor Dennis Estok told the city council last week that while the city wants to pursue the designation, it can’t do it alone.

A Main Street designation would open up grant opportunities for downtown revitalization. The process typically involves forming a nonprofit organization, and setting up committees to oversee the four focus areas of organization, promotion, design, and economic vitality.

Those interested in helping out can attend an informational meeting tomorrow at the Nancy. J. Dembowski Community Center.
