Downtown Revitalization Program

Ripon – with a downtown rich in historic architecture – was among the first communities in Wisconsin selected to participate in the Wisconsin Main Street Program – advocating historic downtown restoration and pursuing economic development through marketing, business recruitment and retention, real estate development and market analysis.

Ripon Main Street, which supports the interests of Ripon downtown property and business owners, guides a business improvement district that oversees the revitalization of Ripon's central business district.

Ripon is one of 750 communities across the country and 35 in Wisconsin to benefit from technical assistance and training programs initiated by the National Trust's Main Street Program and the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp.
