Now accepting nominations!
Each year, Historic Downtown Prosser has elections for open positions on the Board of Directors. Members are volunteers from our community that want to make a difference in cultivating downtown. Our job is to tell Prosser’s story, historical and current, help to preserve the culture and look, and drive business to our local establishments, helping to ensure our economy thrives. This is achieved with four committees through the Main Street four-point approach:
- Outreach involves building an active Main Street team and recruiting strong advocates for revitalization, including local business and property owners, historic preservationists, interested citizens, public officials, and leaders from other community organizations. This committee oversees our volunteer team and looks at our sponsorships and funding sources. This committee meets at 3pm the 2nd Thursday of each month.
- Promotion generates excitement and social vibrancy in the downtown through activities and events in downtown. This committee meets at 12:30 the 2nd Wednesday of each month.
- Design enhances the aesthetic appeal, look and feel of the downtown in a way that incorporates existing historic buildings, landscaping, signage, lighting and other streetscape improvements. This committee is in charge of the façade improvement grant program. This committee meets quarterly on the 2nd Monday (March, June, September, December) at 11am.
- Economic Vitality strengthens small businesses and promotes economic development and providing downtown merchants with tools and resources to help them succeed. This committee meets the 2nd Monday of each month at 1:30pm.
Board members are required to attend monthly Board Meetings the 2nd Monday of each month at 12pm noon, and join at least one of the four committees. We host an annual board retreat on a Saturday each fall and have other events with the expectation that board members attend. Board members are also expected to spend time volunteering their time at our organization’s events and activities throughout the year. The term for a board member is three years. A board member may serve 2 consecutive terms. Email for more information or send your nomination to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, August 31st.
