O.4.1 Full-time Management

Action

Hire a dedicated full-time “Main Street” professional with a comparable regional economic development salary.

Why

Effective management of a main street program requires a full-time manager/leader who can direct all aspects of the four-point approach.  This person needs to be the champion for downtown, a convener, a liaison between downtown building owners, businesses, municipal leaders, residents, volunteers, the community at large, and related stakeholder partners.

How

The Board of Directors should establish a search committee whose responsibility would be to draft a job description complete with required skillset and detailed responsibilities.  The search committee should also take the lead on the hiring process which would include listing the job, reviewing applications, administering the interview process, checking references, and onboarding.
