Together we can make downtown Marion “the vibrant heart of our community”. To fulfill this mission DMI has partnered with both public and private organization. Outside of private partnership DMI has partnered with organizations such as The First Church of the Nazarene, The Marion Community foundation, The Marion Convention Visitors Bureau, Marion Regional Planning, Marion Public Health, MarionMade!, and the Marion Area Chamber of Commerce. In collaboration with these organizations we have been able to update and purchase Christmas decorations, provide new flags to adorn the downtown, assist in demolition of the burned buildings on S. Main, the Cardinal Project and more. We have also created new programs such as Paint the Town, the Cultural Corridor, the Cultural Corridor Walking map, A Taste of Marion Mobile Addition, Bike Friendly Businesses, and LoDo. We are excited about continuing our work of beautification, expansion, and support of business in our downtown. Thank you for supporting this event and any other DMI sponsored event.
