Molalla welcomed 12 new businesses in 2010, thanks in part to joining the Main Street economic development program.

Molalla is one of 12 communities in Clackamas County participating in the Main Street program, which works under the umbrella of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The program has a 30-year track record of helping cities and states across the country regenerate a community’s center. Main Street brings public and private entities together to work on four critical areas: design, promotions, economic restructuring and organization.

The Molalla nonprofit Team for Economic Action oversees the city’s Main Street program, which costs the city about $250 a year in membership dues, and administers its $70,000 annual budget, which comes from taxes collected from an economic improvement district that the city created and goes mostly toward activities related to economic development.
