Working with the Ohio Main Street Program, Explore Olmsted Falls became an affiliate Main Street community in 2018. The group is an independent, nonprofit (501 c3 pending) with a mission "to unite, celebrate, enhance and promote historic downtown Olmsted Falls for economic vibrancy." The Main Street Program is the local-level, economic revitalization strategy of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. As the leading voice for preservation, the National Trust is "the cause for people saving places." The history and character of Olmsted Falls are worth saving, revitalizing and sharing and will always be an important part of what makes the city a great place for business.
The board of directors, led by the inaugural president, Dr. Scott Sedlacek, is working to create a strong organizational structure that will include committees with specific responsibilities within the four-part Main Street approach, including Organization, Economic Vitality, Design and Promotions. Stay tuned for ways to be involved in this group.
