Manchester picked for Tennessee Downtowns program

The Manchester Historic Zoning Commission, chaired by Lisa Moreland, along with downtown merchants, are committed to an appealing, vibrant, and walkable downtown.    Being selected as a Tennessee Downtowns community is the first step in a process of eventually establishing a local Main Street® program, which will make Manchester eligible for grants for which we would otherwise not qualify.
A five person steering committee comprised of Roger Guess, chairman; Steve West, Pat Berges, Ray Amos, and Terri Hudson collected pertinent data and letters of support to put together the application.  This group will undergo several trainings before receiving a $15,000 grant to complete a downtown improvement project
