lineberry foundation grant rsFrom left: Charmeine Wait, Executive Director, Silver City MainStreet, Patrick Hoskins, Board President, Silver City MainStreet, and Rory Deubel.The Silver City MainStreet Project received a $5,000 grant from the Lineberry Foundation to be used for operating expenses. As a small non-profit, this grant is greatly appreciated because operating expenses are always the most challenging budget item to fund.

It was especially nice to meet and receive the grant from Rory Deubel. Mr. Deubel had been an intern with Silver City MainStreet when Frank Milan was the director. Duebel said, "I remember how much work there was to do and was glad to be able to help the MainStreet Project. My grandmother started the Lineberry Foundation, and each year directors are able to pick a project to fund."

The Silver City MainStreet Project is one of the oldest and most successful MainStreet programs in the state. The MainStreet program is a national program fostering economic development in local communities and operates under the NM MainStreet program and the state Economic Development Department.

Silver City MainStreet has accomplished many projects since 1985 including the downtown street lights, downtown gateway arch, improvements to the Big Ditch Park, numerous beautification projects, and most recently, the restoration of the historic Silco Theater.

Currently, funds are being sought for the Main Street Plaza project to transform the 7th Street parking lot into a multiple use area for events, farmers market, as well as continued parking. This project will benefit residents and tourists alike increasing the economic vitality of downtown by providing a much needed event venue and public restrooms. The Plaza is so named because it is on the last remnant of Silver City's Main St. before if became the Big Ditch.

The mission of Silver City MainStreet is "To encourage a vibrant, historic downtown Silver City which is recognized as the heart of our diverse community." Please visit our website, www.silvercitymainstreet.com to learn more.
