DCI & Main Street – A Match Made in Wellington

11 Mar

February 2014, the Town of Wellington and newly formed Wellington Main Street Program were honored to participate in a community assessment with the assistance of DCI and the Colorado Dept. of Local Affairs.  This community assessment encouraged local businesses and the Town Trustees to form The Wellington Main Street Program.  In late November 2014, they hired Executive Director, Wendy DuBord.  The volunteer Board of Directors has been busy and along with Wendy have accomplished a great deal in the last four months.  Main Street has partnered with the Town of Wellington on a GOCO grant for assistance in the construction of the new and very large Community Park.

Main Street also partnered with the Wellington Area Chamber on a grant to the History Colorado, State Historical Fund to complete an intensive survey of historic buildings in downtown Wellington.  They are working on several other grant opportunities to benefit the community and to provide grant and loan funding for downtown business improvements.  The Main Street Design Committee is organizing sponsors and volunteers for a downtown beautification project that will include new sidewalk flower pots, colorful light pole banners, and other cleanup and beautification.

In partnership with the Town of Wellington and Wellington Area Chamber of Commerce, Main Street will participate in a comprehensive economic development assessment with a grant from the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade.

One of the many recommendations from the DCI Community Assessment was re-design of the downtown Centennial Park located on Cleveland Avenue the main street of Wellington.  Just last week, Mike Tupa from the University of Denver, Colorado Center for Community Development and Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) signed a contract with the Town of Wellington to complete this design of Centennial Park as well as other main street improvements and signage and wayfinding design.  Main Street is the local champion and administrative agent for that project on behalf of the town.

Under new or expanded events, Main Street is co-sponsoring a Pi-Day event on March 14 and was instrumental in coordinating and sponsoring Summer Concerts in the Park starting in June.

Wendy DuBord is Executive Director of the Wellington Main Street Program.

    while certain manufacturers have worked to produce sleeper sofas that are serviceable to fall asleep on, the fact is that they’re really for nothing more compared to a temporary night
    or two. As an alternative solution, consider investing in a sleeper sofa from a collection, then adding matching pieces individually.
    The best-known and probably probably the most-used could be the sleeper sofa.

    Before you venture out and buy a sleeper sofa, you need to make sure that it really is exactly everything you want.
    If you don’t want your sofa pillows rolling around within the wash it is possible to wash them personally and allow them air dry.
