Building Maintenance and Improvement Tips

Historic Preservation Tips

As a business/building owner on Main Street Coon Rapids, we know you have lots to think about when it comes to upkeep on your building. We provide monthly newsletters that will give you some help and guidance when it comes to Main Street historic preservation.

Being a part of the Main Street Iowa and Main Street America organizations, we are all involved with historic preservation of our Main Street buildings. We will provide related articles that focus on building elements and maintenance topics. Topics will range from awning care and design, to storefront designs, brick care and cleaning, paint choices, window elements and many more ideas.

These monthly articles are simply ideas and may not always apply to your specific situation, but might help answer questions going forward with maintenance or renovations you might consider in the future.

Thank you for doing your part to continue maintaining our cherished Main Street Coon Rapids.
