Company Overview: Downtown Whitewater, Inc.
Whitewater residents have long recognized the unique role that a healthy downtown district plays in a community. Under the auspices of the Community Development Authority and with the support of the City of Whitewater, a group of over 45 individuals began to meet to find way to turn the tide. This group became known as the Downtown Revitalization Group (DRG), whose work culminated in an Action Plan developed in conjunction with Vierbicher and Associates and presented to and adopted by the Whitewater Common Council in August of 2005.
Downtown Whitewater, Inc. uses the Main Street Approach and advocates a return to community self-reliance, local empowerment, and the rebuilding of traditional commercial districts based on their unique assets: distinctive architecture, a pedestrian-friendly environment, personal service, local ownership, and a sense of community. The underlying premise of the Main Street approach is to encourage economic development within the context of historic preservation in ways appropriate to today’s marketplace.
The Main Street approach is incremental; it is not designed to produce immediate change. In order to succeed, a long-term revitalization effort requires careful attention to every aspect of downtown — a process that takes time and requires leadership and local capacity building.Click here to visit their website »
