Laramie Main Street Prepares for Transformation in 2019

New Year’s Resolutions aren’t just for individuals. As part of its ongoing work to revitalize downtown Laramie, Laramie Main Street is seeking feedback from the public on what they want downtown to be like in the future.

“We all have things we love about downtown and things we wish were different. This process is a great opportunity for our community, business owners, consumers, partners and volunteers to document their thoughts in a way that will influence our strategies moving forward” said Laramie Main Street Director, Trey Sherwood.

As part of a refresh to the Main Street 4-point approach, economic vitality, design, organization and promotion, downtown Laramie will adopt “Transformation Strategies” with assistance from National Main Street and Wyoming Main Street.

Based on broad community input, Main Street will be adopting measurable strategies that over the course of several years will bring about positive, intentional change in downtown’s economy. The strategies will focus on expanding a specific type of business or meeting the needs of certain types of customers.

The short survey, asking things like, “What are the top issues facing downtown” and “what business types would you like to see downtown” will be open January 7 – 17 via It can also be accessed directly through this link:

Survey results will be reviewed by the Laramie Main Street board at 5 pm on January 22 at 115 Ivinson Avenue during a visit with National Main Street staff. For more information about the “Transformation Strategy” process or to get involved, email
