David Bittner, Winona Main Street’s Program Coordinator, was recently interviewed by the Winona Daily News. Bittner started in his position in January. After the community applied in March, Winona Main Street was invited to join the statewide program Summer 2013. Winona Main Street is Minnesota Main Street’s newest Designated Main Street Program and we’re excited about them joining.
Winona Main Street was formed after much community discussion and with a firm partnership between the City of Winona and the Winona Area Chamber of Commerce. Both entities worked before the program officially began to foster good relationships with downtown stakeholders and to start small projects or events that could become annual endeavors. The recent landscaping project is a continued example of one such project.
