Selah Accepted as a Washington State Main Street Community
Report by Clay Graham / Selah Adventures – Selah Community & Tourism.
As of Tuesday January 6th, 2015, Selah was officially accepted as a Washington State Main Street Community. Washington State Main Street Program is a comprehensive, incremental approach to revitalization built around a community’s unique heritage and attributes. Using local resources and initiative, the state program helps communities develop their own strategies to stimulate long term economic growth and pride in the heart of the community- downtown. Local businesses can apply for their business and occupation tax to go into this program to help their city.
Selah Downtown Association has been working very hard for a long time to make this happen. Selah Downtown Association is made up of a volunteer board and four volunteer advisory committees; Economic Restructuring, Design, Organization, and Promotion. These volunteers are Selah residents and Selah Business owners.
With Washington State Main Street Program the Selah Downtown Association will be able to help our city projects, events, tourism and much more. Selah Downtown Association meets the second Monday of each month 3:00 PM at Selah City Hall.
If you are a Selah resident and would like to help, there are openings on the Selah Downtown Association advisory committees. Email us and we will get you to the right person to talk with.
