History, Mission & Values

In February 2014, the Town of Wellington provided funding for a contracted assessment of its downtown in relation to how it now exists and what it could become. The work was done by the nonprofit corporation Downtown Colorado Incorporated (DCI). A final report was issued in the spring of this year and is available on the Town’s website.

In 2014 Wellington Main Streets Program officially became a Candidate Main Streets Program with DOLA. In July of 2017 Wellington Main Streets program applied to become a Designated Colorado Main Streets Program, and we are excited to announce that our program was accepted! Wellington is the first Main Streets community in Colorado in the past 4 years to have reached Designated status.
