Shelby County is looking to improve the appearance of the downtown area, with their event Main Street Makeover, taking place April 22nd. Anna Kiley, with the Shelby County Economic Development Council, said businesses on Main Street and local citizens can volunteer and get involved to visually improve the downtown area and provide more of a reason for people to visit the downtown stores.
Kiley said Main Street Makeover will help the businesses for multiple reasons, such as attracting customers, improving business morale, and to show pride for the city of Shelbyville.
Kiley said the SCEDC is looking for volunteers with all skills for the Main Street Makeover, and they are happy with any amount of time, from one hour, to ten, and even for time volunteered days ahead of time.
To volunteer, go to the Main Street Makeover Facebook Page.
