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 live, shop, work, visit and invest.
In order to accomplish these goals we have implemented the National Main Street Model for commercial district revitalization. This model relies upon a four point approach including Design, Economic Development, Organization and Promotion and is the foundation for the programs and projects of DMI.

Our work is possible through the support and dedication of our members and community partners. More than 100 local businesses contribute to our vision and goals. We encourage you to attend one of our signature events, shop, dine and explore locally and stregthen those that share our belief that the ongoing revitalization of downtown is a critical component of the future growth and development of the City of Mansfield and Richland County.
