America’s Main Streets Contest – Lynden, Washington

Main Street
“Why are America’s Main Streets Important?” Main Streets are really the heartbeat of America’s cities and towns. They play an important part in the long-term success of communities and really help build a sense of place. When Main Streets are strong, so are the communites that surround them.
Your Vote Counts! 253 nominees from all over the United States have competed to show America that they deserved to be named, “America’s Main Street”.
Downtown, Lynden’s Main Street, has officially been named among the top 25 Main Streets in America!
Lynden’s Main Street greatly benefit if it won the cash prize of $25,000….after a slumping economy, with vacant and neglected buildings and a fire that destroyed a major anchor building in 2008 that housed both retail and service businesses. Lynden’s most urgent needs are creating a brand for the community, implementing wayfinding signage to and around downtown, creating a historical walking tour, and upgrading the downtown beautification program (flowers, streetscape and art), and so much more. Winning this award would allow the downtown to go a long way toward achieving some of these needs and goals.
