Historic Downtown Resources

Iowa Downtown Resource Center

The Iowa Downtown Resource Center (IDRC) assists communities around the state in revitalizing their downtowns or commercial districts.  Main Street Iowa is the signature program of the Downtown Resource Center.  Our qualified staff can provide technical assistance to communities through training opportunities, providing referrals, raising awareness of the importance of downtowns. 

The IDRC offers fee-based, technical assistance services including design assistance, business improvement planning, organizational and board building and promotion.  An information exchange is also offered through the Iowa Downtown Resource Center, giving communities access to examples of revitalization projects and activities, sample contracts, qualified consultants in everything from landscape architecture to structural engineering, and much more.

Attend one of the Downtown Forums and let your voice be heard!
