Pat Quinn, Governor
Community Services are planning, preservation, and design presentations and workshops organized by the Program Manager and given by our staff. Available free of charge to every Illinois Main Street community, these services are divided into two categories: Community Training, whose sessions are open to the public (surrounding communities should be encouraged to attend), and Design Committee Training sessions intended for members of the Design Committee.
Pictured is a Basic Design Training conference held in Bloomington in June of 2004. A tornado warning prompted moving the presentation into the kitchen of this historic community center.
These public sessions promote the importance of quality design and the preservation ethic as it relates to downtown revitalization and business improvement. The local Design Committee is required to attend. Other audience members can include business owners, design professionals, contractors, Main-Street volunteers, interior designers, graphic designers, history buffs, historical-society and preservation-commission members, realtors, Main-Street board members, local government representatives, and interested citizens. If you feel that your community would benefit from any of the Community Services, contact your Manager to request a session.
