Five communities in Shelby County have joined together to undertake a county wide “Main Street Makeover” this weekend. The event is designed to help clean up and increase the curb appeal of the downtown areas in those participating communities, in an effort to make Shelby County a more attractive county for residents, visitors, and potential businesses.
Anna Kiley, Economic Development Director for Shelby County said the communities are doing everything they can to improve the exterior appearance of the businesses in the participating communities, to help entice customers out of their cars and into the businesses.
The event is utilizing volunteers to help make the event happen. Several businesses have stepped up to assist with the volunteers, from helping with the work, to providing food and beverages to help fuel the volunteer effort.
Kiley wanted to thank those involved for making the event happen, saying even businesses who don’t benefit directly from the makeover are stepping up to help out.
Shelby County Partners group is sponsoring the event.
