Established in 1989, Downtown Mansfield, Inc. (DMI) is a nonprofit membership based organization whose mission is to stimulate economic development, improve the appearance and create a positive image of the downtown as a desirable place to work, live, visit, shop and invest. In order to accomplish these goals we have implemented the National Main Street Model for commercial district revitalization and follow our Strategic Redevelopment Plan available here.
The National Main Street Model for commercial revitalization relies on the four point approach to commercial district revitalization. This approach includes: Organization, Design, Economic Restructuring and Promotion and is the foundation for the programs and projects of Downtown Mansfield, Inc. (DMI). Through these strategies we organize committees, establish programs and projects and maintain ongoing revitalization initiatives.
Downtown Mansfield, Inc. is possible through the support and dedication of our members and community partners. More than 100 businesses in downtown Mansfield support the vision and goals of DMI. We encourage to you to attend one of our signature events and visit the businesses that are highlighted throughout this site and strengthen those that share our belief in downtown revitalization as a critical element in the growth and development of the City of Mansfield and Richland County.
