Rawlins Main Street
What's Up Downtown?
- Great American Main Street Winners
All downtown businesses and DDA/Main Street volunteers had reason to congratulate each other for all our hard work when we received the 2015 Great American Main Street Award (GAMSA) during the National Main Streets Conference in Atlanta this March. It is given to those exemplifying the use of the Main Street Approach to revitalize their traditional downtowns. Rawlins is the first community in the northern Rocky Mountain region to win the coveted downtown economic development. Equally impressive, only 88 out of more than 2,000 National Main Street Center affiliates have won the award since its inception in 1995. Good work everyone!

- 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. We are currently hiring the architect for this large group of projects. Please contact the Rawlins DDA/ Main Street at 307-328-2099 with any questions or concerns in regard to this Program.
