The Promotions and Marketing Committee is working together with the business and building owners to develop special and retail events
in downtown Portland as well as to market Portland as a well-rounded collection of retail, restaurant, and service businesses.
We encourage Portland residents to think Portland first when they need goods or services and save time and money that would be spent on the trip to Lansing or Grand Rapids. Shopping in Portland builds the local economy by creating jobs in current businesses as well as attracting new businesses and the jobs that those businesses will create. It also increases the selection of goods and services available in Portland!
Do you have a passion for planning and organizing events or working with businesses to foster cooperation and marketing efforts? Then you should consider joining our Promotions and Marketing Committee!
Promotions and Marketing Committee Chair:
The Promotions and Marketing Committee meets the fourth Wednesday of every month
The Portland Main Street program exists at the intersection of historic preservation and economic development. Our goal is to revitalize the downtown while protecting and enhancing the unique historic buildings. Our volunteers work to protect the sense of place and history that downtown Portland holds and build on that.
