- 2015 GAMSA Semi-Finalists
Every year, the National Main Street Center awards communities throughout the country with the Great American Main Street Award (GAMSA). It is given to those exemplifying the use of the Main Street Approach to revitalize their traditional downtowns and/or neighborhood business districts. In 2014, Rawlins DDA/ Main Street was awarded the "One to Watch" Award, which recognizes exceptional communities working on innovative projects and that are poised on the cusp of major transformation. For the 2015 year, Rawlins DDA/ Main Street has been announced as one of the 10 semi-finalists for the GAMSA. We look forward to hearing the results at the National Main Street Conference in Atlanta, Georgia in March 2015.
- Facade Easement Program
The City of Rawlins and Rawlins DDA/ Main Street have created a unique and creative program to rehabilitate the commercial facades (storefronts) in downtown Rawlins. The program will be funded through state grants, federal grants and by partnering with the business owners. In order to participate the business has to meet certain requirements and be within the historic district. We are currently wrapping up the environmental review process that is required for use of federal funds. The next step is a 15 day public comment period. Interested parties my comment on any significant changes to, or impact on the historic value of the district and buildings. You can stop by City Hall for specific information on the environmental review. Please contact the Rawlins DDA/ Main Street with any questions or concerns in regard to this Program.
