Vote Your Main Street: Casa Grande in the Running

 Downtown Casa Grande

Downtown Casa Grande

This year, the National Trust for Historic Preservation is partnering with the National Main Street Center for Partners in Preservation: Main Streets – a grassroots campaign recognizing 25 historic sites on American Main Streets. The #VoteYourMainStreet campaign is providing $2 million to fund preservation projects for the 10 communities that receive the most votes.

Casa Grande Main Street is one of the 25 communities chosen for this national campaign - and the only Arizona community in the running. If victorious, Casa Grande Main Street will create a new Vintage Neon Sign Park by salvaging historic neon signs from throughout the community. The park will serve as a vibrant downtown destination for visitors. The community is competing against household names like New Orleans, Seattle, and Los Angeles, so they need our state-wide support to help bring a Vintage Neon Sign Park to Downtown Casa Grande.

You can vote daily (up to 5 times a day!) through October 31 to help Casa Grande receive a share of $2 million in funding for preservation projects. Voters can also enter for a chance to win a trip from National Geographic.

The presence of a Main Street program leads to an average of $3.1 million more in retail sales each year than would be expected otherwise. Between 2015 and 2016, this amounted to $3.3 billion nationwide.
