Washington's Main Street Program on the chopping block again
ELLENSBURG, Wash. - Washington's Main Street program is again on the chopping block as Governor Gregoire looks at the state's budget.
"Main Street" aims at developing and revitalizing downtown areas. Economic developers in Ellensburg credit much of their downtown revitalization work to the program. The 2009 budget for the Main Street Program was $120,000. Several legislators have proposed bills to stop the cut.
