Young Main Street Committee
MAIN STREET ENTERPRISE
CREATING | INSPIRING | RETHINKING
The Main Street Enterprise Board has developed a "Young Main Street" Committee which consists of individuals ages 14 - 25 who are interested in participating in Main Street projects.
The Young Main Street Committee has developed a goal to beautify the incubator as well as it's location.
In March, the YMS Committee worked together to pressure wash the brick wall that borders the empty lot prior to the arrival of the incubator container. The group also trimmed back the beautiful rose bushes lining the walk way.
The YMS Committee worked together to design a mural to wrap the container. The artists were inspired by the Main Street Enterprise tagline "deeply rooted, ever rising". The mural depicts roots growing into camellias , the Alabama state flower, in multiple areas on the container. One side of the container will feature a sunset scene with a backlit Boll Weevil Monument and the back side of the container will have a "selfie station. The YMS Committee presented their mural design concept to Council on March 21st and the concept was approved.
In April, volunteers gathered to begin the container makeover. The container was repainted with a new coat of a blue that matches the Main Street Enterprise branding.
Over the next few weeks, the YMS volunteers will be working to trace and paint the mural onto the container. Stay tuned...
