Rawlins Main Street
What's Up Downtown?
- 2014 Passion & Pride Ball "Starlight in the Desert"
A night of dancing, auctions, food & fun, this ball will be held on September 6th at the Jeffrey Center and is a major fund-raiser for projects that beautify and enhance our downtown. This year, the funds will go toward a revolving arts program for the downtown. Join us in promoting a sense of pride for our community.
- Resuming Construction
Rawlins DDA/Main Street and the City of Rawlins received an $800,000 grant for Streetscaping throughout downtown Rawlins. The matching funds for this grant were raised locally during the 2010 and 2011 Balls. The construction includes bumpouts on all corners on Cedar between 3rd and 6th, more trashcans and benches, a center lane, informational kiosks about downtown businesses, and will restructure parking throughout downtown to one side diagonal and one side parallel. For more information, visit the construction page on our website.
- Downtown: A Historic Asset
Over the past two years, Rawlins DDA/Main Street has been working with community members and other towns to update the Design Guidelines created for downtown in 1984. We now have updated Design Guidelines approved by City Council in August 2012. This ordinance creates a mandatory review, voluntary compliance for all facade updates, new construction and signage in the Downtown Development District.
