(GARDEN CITY, Kan.)—Representatives of more than 20 Kansas downtown programs are working to restart the Kansas Main Street organization, which was shut down last year by the state.
Directors from 25 Kansas downtown programs met last week in Hutchinson to sign articles of incorporation. The articles were signed by eight directors representing five geographical areas.
The Garden City Telegram reports the group will meet again next week to finalize bylaws and relationships with groups that have offered help.
Beverly Schmitz Glass, executive director of the Garden City Downtown Vision, says the group will not seek any state funds.
