The structure of our program revolves around four volunteer committees — Organization, Promotion, Design, and Economic Restructuring – that have developed important goals and reached key objectives designed to make our Main Street area more attractive to residents and visitors as well as more economically viable for local businesses.

Rachael Morrison, Executive Director, CEDC

Rachael is a huge advocate of small towns. She grew up in a navy family and we moved frequently, and you realize how important having a sense of community is to your quality-of-life.  Rachael is quoted saying “In ‘small town America’ people recognize you when you walk down the street, and they stop and talk. The businesses you shop in know your likes and dislikes.”

Rachael coordinates aspects of the commercial revitalization process, with considerable independent judgment and initiative, with the guidance of the Board of Directors. With the help of four volunteer committees, part of what Rachael is responsible for:

  • Organizing downtown interests in a unified manner
  • Working towards common-end objectives
  • Approaching design issues as a means to create or preserve an attractive physical setting
  • Coordinating promotional activities and events
  • Structuring economic opportunities
  • Attracting new business opportunities
  • Developing viable marketplace enterprises
