has been designated as a Main Street community. Heritage
Ohio, which administers the program, made the announcement yesterday.
June 2010, Marietta has been participating in the Main Street Emerging Level Program,
preparing a program for success at downtown revitalization.
A selection committee from Heritage Ohio recently
reviewed the work done by ReStore Marietta, and found that all
the requirements have been satisfied.
Ohio Director Joyce Barrett says Marietta has demonstrated a real commitment to its future, with a volunteer board of directors as well as securing stable
funding for a sustained revitalization program.
Marietta Director Jean Farmer says this is an exciting time for the city.
now shares the Main Street designation with 23 Ohio communities,
including Cambridge, Mount Vernon and Millersburg.
