Downtown Alive is a group of stakeholders consisting of downtown merchants, the City, EDC, Chamber, Blue Springs Business Association, Historical Society and business outside downtown area.
This group recently received a service-based grant from the Missouri Main Street Connection and is now enrolled in the Missouri Main Street Program. This two-year downtown revitalization program is designed to ensure the long-term success of the downtown by creating, educating, training and empowering a comprehensive, professional, volunteer-based downtown revitalization organization.
The program focuses on on the Main Street Four Points Approach, a system that has been used successfully in over 110 cities in Missouri. The Four Points include Organization, Economic Restructuring, Design and Promotion. Program participants including business owners and community stakeholders have been organized into committees based on these Four Points.
After completing the program, the Downtown Alive! group will be in a better position to foster new business development, façade renovations and restoration of historic buildings, festivals and special events, and streetscape improvements.
