- Construction Coming Soon
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 will include 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. This project will take between 3-4 months, and will tear up Cedar Street from 3rd-6th. For the "Request for Proposal Packet" for the design and bidding services, click here. To read about this project and other recommended improvements, click here to view the Rawlins Downtown Development Plan. As we receive questions about the RFP, we will be posting the answers. New questions posted here as of April 10, 2013.
- 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.
