Main Street


With support from Nampa native Kevin Daniels, the City of Nampa is excited to host an opportunity for towns across the state -- and country -- to hear from national experts on the Main Street model.    

This is a very special opportunity to collaborate as we identify ways to revitalize Idaho's Main Street program and hear from Ed McMahon, Chairman Emeritus at Main Street America, who will describe how the economic development paradigm is changing. In particular, he will focus on “asset-based economic development” and how the “quality of a community” has become the most important factor in affecting where job seekers want to live. 

We will also hear from Michael Wagler, Main Street Iowa State Coordinator, about the mechanics of operating a successful statewide Main Street program and impactful results as a result of 30+ years of the Main Street Iowa program.

There are two ways to attend: 

  • Attending in-person //The event will be held at the Nampa Civic Center, located at 311 3rd Street South in Nampa. Please RSVP to [email protected] if you plan to attend in person.

  • Virtually // A virtual link will be added to this website before the event. Please feel free to add this website to your appointment on your calendar and check back.
