Southwest Missouri News--Carthage

Posted online

The city of Carthage is being recognized for its efforts to revitalize its downtown area.

The Main Street Carthage organization received the "Excellence in Downtown Revitalization" award at the Eighth Annual Missouri Main Street Conference, held April 21 in Jefferson City.

The organization won the public improvement award for its work to replace and redesign the city's street signs in the downtown area.

Other award winners were Warrensburg, Sedalia and Clarksville.

The Main Street Program was established in 1989 as the state's first comprehensive downtown revitalization program. Since that time, Missouri communities have created more than 560 new businesses and nearly 2,000 new jobs in downtown areas.

As a result, $59 million has been reinvested in local downtown areas.
