TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – A main street is the heart of many small Kansas communities, and the Department of Commerce is trying to keep downtowns alive.
The Kansas Main Street Program is helping more than two dozen communities in Kansas. It was scrapped in 2012 and is back for the first time this year.
The legislature approved $250,000 for the program this year. It was developed in the 1980s and is geared at helping communities as small as Belleville to bigger ones like Emporia and Hutchinson.
