Historic Plain City is home to a small town with warmth and hospitality and offers endless opportunities as a prosperous place to live, work, shop and conduct business. Uptown Plain City Organization (UPCO) is an innovative group of volunteers who are focused on the growth and development of the Historic Uptown District.
UPCO supports the Village of Plain City with design considerations, economic development for businesses and property owners, and an influx of visitors for events within the community.
Based on the Main Street Approach of the NATIONAL TRUST FOR HISTORIC PRESERVATIONS, UPCO works to improve all aspects of the downtown or central business district, producing both tangible and intangible benefits. Improving economic management, strengthening public participation, and making downtown a fun place to visit are as critical to Plain City’s future as recruiting new businesses, rehabilitating buildings, and enhancing current businesses. Through events, grants, and educational seminar, UPCO strives to rekindle entrepreneurship, downtown cooperation and civic concern.
The all-volunteer organization is comprised of:
· Design Committee
· Business Enhancement Committee
· Operations Committee
· Marketing Committee
