The Wellington Colorado
Main Streets Program
is an organized group of pro-active citizens whose goal is to promote, enhance, and develop downtown Wellington for the benefit of its inhabitants, businesses, and visitors.
Wellington Colorado Main Streets Program is organized as a Colorado nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation run by a volunteer board of directors.
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 is available on the Town’s website. In 2014 Wellington Main Streets Program officially became a Candidate Main Streets Program with DOLA, and the first Executive Director of the program was Wendy Dubord, who spent much of her career working for Steamboat Springs (also a Main Street community). Wendy did a great job of getting the program up and running before retiring in late 2016 when Dave Michaelson came on as executive Director.
In July of 2017 Wellington Main Streets program applied to become a Designated Colorado Main Streets Program, and was accepted! Wellington is the first Main Streets community in Colorado in the past 4 years to have reached Designated status through DOLA. There are 20 Main Street communities in the state of Colorado.
In September of 2019, Kallie Cooper took over as Executive Director following Annie Lindgren who led the program beginning in 2017. Kallie and her family have lived in Wellington since 2017 and brings talent, enthusiasm, and dedication to meeting the needs of the downtown area. She received a Bachelor’s Degree in Television Production and Marketing from Wartburg College in Waverly, IA and has worked with non-profits and the public school system since 2009. She is excited to play an even bigger role in supporting local businesses and the community she is raising her children in.
