Batavia MainStreet board revises mission

BATAVIA – Batavia MainStreet has revised its mission to add a focus that emphasizes supporting the downtown’s businesses, encouraging new businesses and developing the downtown.

“The wish to add a business focus came because business retention and recruitment is something that MainStreet already does, and we want to make sure we reflect everything we do in our vision,” Kurt Hagemann, owner of Hagemann Wealth Management and vice president of the MainStreet board, said in a news release.

The new vision reads, “Our vision is to help create a unique and vital downtown that enriches the business community embraces history, celebrates the arts, preserves our natural environment and promotes quality events to instill a ‘sense of place’ in our community.”

The board is made up of Batavia residents, local business and property owners and city representatives.

The Batavia MainStreet program is a nonprofit, community-based organization. MainStreet members work through the four points: design, economic restructuring, organization and promotion to improve the downtown district.

Information about Batavia MainStreet is available by calling the Batavia MainStreet office at 630-761-3528 or going to its website at www.downtownbatavia.com.
