Cindy Sholar of Renaissance on Main and Mayor Lyn Bailey said they were not able to attend the ceremony, but said they were proud to be recognized.
The Kentucky Heritage Council started the Kentucky Main Street Program in 1979 to preserve historic downtown buildings and to improve the downtown areas’ economies. Two million dollars are allocated each year in the state’s budget for these programs.
Becky Gorman, the Kentucky Main Street Program’s state coordinator, said that certified cities could apply for any amount below $150,000.
The Kentucky Main Street Program is now also referred to around the state as Renaissance on Main, which can be attributed to Cadiz’s title for their program.
