Read Colfax's Market Study and Strategies Report here!

In 2021 Colfax Main Street volunteers participated in Main Street Iowa's Market Studies and Strategies Program. This program helped our volunteers gather market data through consumer and business surveys and ESRI mapping.  This information was used to create strategies, goals, and projects that Colfax Main Street will implement over the next few years to help our vision of making historic Downtown Colfax a vibrant place to live, conduct business, and enjoy!

DOWNTOWN DESIGN GUIDE

The physical elements of our historic commercial district in Colfax embody our community's past, serve as venue for its present and contain the potential for it's future vibrancy.  The Downtown Design Guide was made by Main Street Iowa and Main Street America as a tool to educate Main Street America coordinating programs, historic business district property owners, city staff,  historic preservation advocates, and local volunteers in the best practices to preserve and maintain the physical assets of our historic downtowns for future economic vibrancy.
