Seminole maintains great potential as a destination for retailers, residents and visitors alike. Despite losses to time, fire and Oklahoma weather, Seminole has a remarkable collection of historic structures and brick streets, giving the town charm and character. Combined with residents’ immense civic pride and a desire for downtown to thrive, Seminole Main Street has a solid foundation to equal or surpass its former self.
Since its inception in 2012, Seminole Main Street, Inc. volunteers and board of directors have been working diligently to progress the opportunity of resurgent growth in the heart of our community.
Seminole Main Street is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and is affiliated with Oklahoma Main Street and the Oklahoma Department of Commerce. For 25 years, Oklahoma’s Main Street program has been pumping new life back into the heart of communities across the state. Combining historic preservation and downtown revitalization efforts with powerful economic stimulation, Main Street restores the core assets of our communities and enhances the quality of life for our citizens.
Currently, our largest project is a multiple-phase project working with Urban Development Services and Oklahoma Main Street to bring a new streetscape design to our downtown area. A new streetscape would consist of many potential updates and upgrades including, but not limited to: trees, decorative lighting, a plaza, additional parking, development in vacant lots and more. Scott Day of Urban Development Services, visited our community in May to help develop a streetscape plan.
Seminole Main Street is also looking forward to another business on Main Street, the Butterfly Boutique, which is relocating from Strothers Avenue to 210 N. Main and is expected to open beginning of July. This will greatly enhance the downtown Seminole shopping experience and appeal.
Our mission is to fuel the future and preserve the past. These are few of our accomplishments since our founding:
Our efforts are directed towards the revitalization of the central business district, when one part of the community thrives and grows, the whole community benefits.
The organization is managed by Executive Director, Kiley Peters. As a facilitator, Peters coordinates each of the four committees in the organization — Promotions, Organization, Economic Restructuring & Development and Design.
The Board of Directors include: Dillon Robinson, President; Jack Cadenhead, Vice President; Brett Butner, Treasurer; LaDonna Vanlandingham, Secretary; Pam Robinson, Organization Committee Chair; Kari Bryan, Promotions Committee Chair; Jane Ann Pyron, Promotions Committee Chair; Danna Riffle, Economic Restructuring Committee Chair.
