Main Street Grundy Center
The Iowa Economic Development Authority named Grundy Center a Main Street community in August of 2015. This designation provides local, state and federal resources to enhance and preserve Grundy Center’s beautiful and historic main street district. A major focus of the Main Street approach is to preserve the historic buildings that give our district charm and to strengthen the businesses that are located in our community. We strive to capture the old and promote the new.
Since August, MSGC has been working on plans to beautify our district’s streetscape with new planters and seating areas. We are developing action plan’s to restore our historic building facades in the near future and have hosted a variety of workshops for local business owners.
We are working hard to promote the wonderful retailers and service businesses that we have in our downtown district. Grundy Center is a great place to live, work and shop.
Progress is made in baby steps, but we are moving in the right direction.
