Main Street Matters in Placerville

Dawn Hodson, for the Mountain Democrat:

Proving once again how much local residents cherish downtown Placerville, it was announced on Monday that the city is one of 20 winners in the paint makeover contest called “Main Street Matters,” sponsored by the Benjamin Moore Paint Company.

The campaign to honor and revitalize Main Street included over 130 cities in the United States and Canada who competed for one of 20 coveted spots. The outcome was determined by how many votes a city received. According to Benjamin Moore, almost a half million votes were recorded during the six-week voting period that ended June 30.

I’m pleased that my hometown made the cut. Good for Benjamin Moore for promoting and supporting thriving downtowns and I can’t wait to see the results.
