Committees

Board of Directors

The El Dorado Main Street Board of Directors is a group of volunteers who have matured as a EMS committee member and are now a part of the leadership team. This is a working board where members are involved in activities, decision making, and fundraising.

Design Committee

Design focuses on getting the Main Street district into top physical shape and creating a safe, inviting environment for shoppers, workers, and visitors while preserving a place’s historic character. This committee focuses their efforts on the visual elements inherent in a commercial district by directing attention to all of its physical elements including: public and private buildings, storefronts, signs, public spaces, parking areas, street furniture, public art, landscaping, merchandising, window displays, and promotional materials.  An appealing atmosphere, created through attention to all of these visual elements, conveys a positive message about the commercial district and what it has to offer. Popular design activities also include instilling good maintenance practices in the commercial district, enhancing the district’s physical appearance through the rehabilitation of historic buildings, encouraging appropriate new construction, developing sensitive design management systems, educating business and property owners about design quality, and long-term planning.

Economic Vitalization

The goal of the Economic Vitalization committee is to build a commercial district that responds to the needs of today’s consumers while maintaining the community’s historic character and strives to strengthen our community’s existing economic assets while diversifying its economic base. This is accomplished by evaluating how to retain and expand successful businesses to provide a balanced commercial mix, sharpening the competitiveness and merchandising skills of business owners, and attracting new businesses that the market can support and through creative reuse of historic properties.

Organization Committee

Organization establishes consensus and cooperation by building partnerships among various groups in El Dorado.  Working toward the same goals, the Organization Committee works collaboratively with El Dorado Inc, El Dorado Chamber of Commerce and the City Convention & Visitor’s Bureau to provide an effective, ongoing management and advocacy towards the development of business and community in the downtown district.

Promotions Committee

Promotion takes many forms, but the goal is to create a positive image that will renew community pride and tell your Main Street story to the surrounding region. The techniques used by the committee help to rekindle the vitality of our downtown by communicating the district’s unique characteristics, its cultural traditions, architecture, history and activities to the community and visitors.
