Main Street Waterbury Launches Website


Main Street Waterbury has launched its website,

The site was designed by The Worx Group from Prospect, CT as part of their in-kind support for Downtown Waterbury’s Main Street Program. Working in conjunction with Main Street Waterbury’s Organization and Promotions Committees, The Worx Group has crafted a site that is easy to navigate, visually exciting and very informative.

In addition to providing current work plan information and meeting minutes from the four active Main Street Committees of Promotion, Design, Organization and Economic Restructuring, the site also provides the capability for newsletters to be sent out to all Main Street supporters and donors, downtown events listings, available downtown property listings, Main Street Waterbury sponsor listings, and how to become a Main Street Waterbury volunteer.

In addition to their design support, The Worx Group has also agreed to host the site. Main Street Waterbury’s server and data center are being hosted by MScript located on Bank Street as part of their in-kind support to the organization. The capability for newsletter distribution is being provided by Qscend Technologies Inc. also located on Bank Street.

The website also includes links to other related sites including the Waterbury Regional Chamber, Northwest Connecticut Convention and Visitors Bureau, The City of Waterbury, the Downtown Waterbury Merchants, The Connecticut Main Street Center and the National Main Street Center.

Main Street Waterbury’s Executive Director Carl Rosa is very pleased with the site. Rosa stated, “Having our website live and interactive will allow us to get the word out, to many more people, about Main Street Waterbury’s current activities and accomplishments towards our goal of downtown Waterbury revitalization. Having the locally based companies of The Worx Group, Mscript, and Qscend Technologies Inc. offer their web and communications talent to this project not only showcases their capabilities, but is a classic example of the how other organizations can step up to help us with our mission.”

The next step is to find someone to help with uploading the monthly committee activities and events images. Rosa adds, “Main Street Waterbury events, activities and accomplishments are happening at a quicker pace these days. We want the website to reflect this and to serve as a tool to keep our visitors continually informed.”

The Main Street approach to downtown revitalization is dependent on community volunteers, grass roots initiatives and is based on the following four points: Design, Organization, Promotion, and Economic Restructuring.

Main Street Waterbury is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization funded by a combination of public and private contributions.
