Heritage Ohio is proud to announce the 2011 certification of Main Street Port Clinton as an Ohio Main Street Community. A member of the Main Street program since 2006, Main Street Port Clinton continues to work towards revitalizing its historic downtown district.
“We are very proud to see Main Street Port Clinton receive National Accreditation for 2011,” said Jeff Siegler, Director of Revitalization for Heritage Ohio. “This demonstrates that the organization is meeting all of the necessary criteria to be successful in its effort to revitalize downtown Port Clinton. The importance of the Main Street Port Clinton’s efforts to sustain downtown businesses and protect the historic infrastructure cannot be overstated during this time of economic uncertainty.”
Since 2007, $432,786,500 have been invested across 30 Main Street Districts, of which Main Street Port Clinton was one. For each dollar that went into the local budget, communities saw more than $22 in improvements such as renovations, new construction, and façade improvements in that time.
