Breaking News: Main Street Homer to Create a Downtown Transformation Strategy Roadmap and Seeks Community

We often hear talk about what downtown Homer looked in the ‘good old days’. Do you ever think about what downtown Homer will look like in the ‘good old future’? Now is the time to start thinking about that and we need community input and your guidance to plan the future that Homer needs and deserves.

Louisiana Main Street has selected Homer as the second Main Street community in the state of Louisiana to develop a Transformation Strategy. Over the next six months, Main Street Homer will receive intensive hands-on technical assistance to identify, develop, and implement a Transformation Strategy. Described as a “strategic plan to transform your town” and a “work plan on steroids,” a Transformation Strategy provides a unifying vision of the future for downtown Homer. Main Street Homer will use our Transformation Strategy to align programming and identify specific goals and measures of success. Louisiana Main Street will facilitate community visioning, market analysis, workshop sessions, and more.

The Transformation Strategy must be generated from community input and not from an outside source, so we are asking you, the citizens of Homer and surrounding areas to take 5 minutes to complete a community survey. Deadline for completion of the survey is June 20, 2023.
