Our Mission

WRMS embraces a four prong approach to achieving its revitalization goals: enhancing the physical appearance of the commercial district; improving its economic stability; marketing its features and benefits; and promoting community involvement among its business and residential membership base.

We have four committees that work on accomplishing these goals:

Design:

Enhancing the physical appearance of the commercial district by rehabilitating historic buildings, encouraging and supporting new construction, developing sensitive design management systems and long-term planning.

Organization:

Building consensus and cooperation among the many groups and individuals who have a role in the revitalization process.

Promotions:

Marketing the traditional commercial district’s assets to customers, potential investors, new businesses, local residents, and visitors.

Economic Restructuring:

Strengthening the district’s economic base while finding ways to expand it to meet new opportunities and challenges from outlying development.

Special Events:

We host several special events each year and seek volunteers to help with planning, promoting, and assisting with event operations.
