Main Street Program Update

The Langenburg Economic Development Committee (LEDC) has received funding of 5 grants totalling $3,810.00 from the Government of Saskatchewan, Ministry of Parks Culture and Sport. These grants are in support with the Main Street Saskatchewan Program Affiliate Tier that Langenburg was approved for back in November. Some of the grant money has already been put toward training individuals on the Mains Street Saskatchewan Program in workshops and conferences in Maple Creek and Regina. The other grants will go towards further training, gathering inventory, and presentation material for a public meeting to be held in the near future.

Along with the Provincial Government, the Town of Langenburg and the LEDC have allocated funds towards the Main Street Revitalization Project. More grant money will be available to apply for in the future once the training and planning stages of the program are completed.

For those unfamiliar with Main Street Saskatchewan, it is a plan used to revitalize and upgrade the downtown areas in communities to influence and increase economic growth, as well as maintain and conserve the community’s heritage through the existing building structures. There are 2 tiers to the program: Affiliate and Accredited. Currently Langenburg is in the Affiliate tier which is essentially the planning stage. Once the planning process is complete then there is the option to apply for the Accredited tier where the town will start to see the plans take action.

The LEDC and Town of Langenburg are eager for the experience to work on the Main Street Saskatchewan Program, and appreciate the opportunity from the Government of Saskatchewan.
