Saline Main Street, Saline MI

Saline Main Street, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, was chosen as a ‘Select’ Main Street program by the Michigan Main Street Center in 2012. Since then we have seen significant investment in downtown, increased volunteerism, new physical improvements, and intensified community pride. Now, five years later, we have been honored as a Master Level program and chosen as one of the three organizations in the State of Michigan to participate in the new, national, Main Street America Refresh program. Driven by a volunteer Board of Directors and supported by a full-time executive director and hundreds of volunteers serving as team members or individuals performing specific tasks, we are embarking on exciting, economically grounded “Transformational Strategies” in 2017!
