MAIN STREET MASON CITY
MAIN STREET MASON CITY Vision:
Downtown Mason City will be known as an architectural destination bound together by culture, business, and pride.
Visitors will have a good first impression. As the city is showcased, all will feel that downtown is the heart of the city. A unified plan, promoted activities filled with synergy, involvement by all people, including youth, and Mason City's unique image will enhance downtown as the key to success of the city.
As a piece of the cultural crescent, Downtown Mason City's action based identity will include a sustainable mix of involved businesses and a common gathering place in the midst of history and architecture.
Shoppers will find a variety of necessities and amenities to meet their needs in Mason City's walkable district. Historic Park Inn and downtown shops will create a regional hub and destination for the entire Midwest. The source of pride in Mason City's livable downtown community will be evident. As a community proud of its past and present, Mason City will demonstrate optimism towards its future.

Main Street Mason City's Mission is to enhance, promote, and preserve downtown Mason City as a diverse business, cultural, and residential destination for the benefit of the entire community.
