Mission: Downtown Westbrook Coalition engages residents, the business community, and the municipality to create a positive downtown environment by recruiting and retaining businesses, drawing people downtown by hosting and promoting events, and making downtown a walkable, livable, thriving destination.
DWC is a Downtown Network community, administered by the Maine Downtown Center. The network program is a sister program to Main Street Maine. In Maine, there are 10 Main Street communities, and 19 Network communities. All these communities follow the successful Four-Point Approach to build a sustainable and complete community revitalization effort. There is a committee for each of the four points, click the link for more information, and contact our director if you're interested in joining!
