All Main Streets have their own set of unique challenges, but we all share a common goal of creating a vibrant and prosperous destination for our communities,” said Nancy Perez, Rio Grande City Main Street and Business Development Coordinator. “I look forward to an ongoing partnership not only with them, but with other Main Street cities as well.”
