Heritage Centre Association Receives National Accreditation
Good things are happening to downtown Mount Vernon. The Heritage Centre Association, a member of the Main Street program since 2009, has received the 2011 certification as on Ohio Main Street Community. This national accreditation is a big step to the continued work towards revitalizing the historic downtown district.
"We are very proud to see the Heritage Centre Association receive National Accreditation for 2011," said Jeff Siegler, Director of Revitalization for Heritage Ohio. "This demonstrates that the organization is meeting all of the necessary criteria to be successful in its effort to revitalize downtown Mount Vernon. The importance of the Heritage Centre Association efforts to sustain downtown business and protect the historic infrastructure cannot be overstated during this time of economic uncertainty."
Heritage Ohio strives to help people: save the places that matter, build community, and live better. It is the leading statewide, non-profit preservation organization, dedicated to encouraging and assisting people and organizations to protect and preserve Ohio's heritage and cultural resources. No doubt will this accomplishment better serve our community here in Knox County, and perhaps new and great things are in store for the downtown in the near future.
