Main Street Coon Rapids

Main Street Coon RapidsThe Iowa Economic Authority (IEDA) announced the addition of Coon Rapids as the newest Main Street Iowa community on August 13, 2019. Coon Rapids joins just 53 other Main Street Iowa communities across the state.

As a MSI community, we receive guidance and technical assistance from the Iowa Economic Development Authority to promote shopping downtown, recruit new businesses, strengthen existing businesses, host retail events, rehabilitate building facades and much more.

THE DISTRICT Main Street Coon Rapids Proposed District
Main Street Coon Rapids focuses its efforts in a defined downtown district. Our downtown district extends along Main Street from Seventh Avenue to Fourth Avenue north to Park Street and south to the railroad tracks with some residential homes excluded. Click here to download the map.

Even though the program focuses on a specific area, many of the benefits will extend beyond the downtown district, lifting up and improving the whole community.

Fifteen volunteers formed the Downtown Coon Rapids Group because they believe that a thriving downtown is essential to a vibrant community. The DCRG’s mission is to create a thriving downtown by nurturing business growth and improvement through increased community involvement and inclusion while being mindful of the past and focusing on the future. To accomplish this, DCRG spearheaded the Main Street Iowa program application.
