Main Street Iowa conducted an annual review of the Jefferson Matters: Main Street program Sept. 9-10.
The review found Jefferson to have fulfilled all criteria and officially accredited the program as a National Main Street community.
Jefferson is one of 52 communities out of 952 in Iowa to achieve the Main Street designation.
Over the course of the two days, the review team met in hour-long meetings with each of the Jefferson matters: Main Street committees—Design, Organization, Business Improvement, Promotion and Tower View Team.
They also met with city officials, executive committee members of the Greene County Development Corp., and staff and board members of the Greene County Chamber of Commerce.
The annual review serves as the accreditation visit fr a community to maintain its national Main Street status.
Jefferson Matters: Main Street is a volunteer organization devoted to economic development through historic preservation in downtown Jefferson.
