The Wyoming Main Street Program has opened registration for a traveling workshop that will help participants revitalize and build vibrant commercial districts in Wyoming’s downtowns.

The Wyoming Main Street-sponsored Best Practices Workshop will tour Main Street communities in Michigan May 15-17 to learn how Main Street principles are being applied in other communities.  The workshop brings together people from Wyoming communities of all sizes to network, discuss issues, and learn new ideas and solutions for growing and developing downtown revitalization programs.

Registration for the workshop will close April 1. Directly following the workshop is the National Main Streets Conference.  It will be held in Detroit, Mich., May 18-20 and will focus on works in progress.

Britta Mireley, Wyoming Main Street program manager said she believes the participants will take a lot of knowledge home with them to implement in their own communities.
