Main Street Gardnerville is now accepting applications for a new program director to lead the non-profit organization. The position serves as the central advocate for the downtown district; acting as liaison between the program, public and private agencies, civic groups, downtown stakeholders, and the community.

Main Street Gardnerville is a 501(c)(3) focused on the ongoing revitalization of Gardnerville. Founded in 2008 by a group of citizens with the goal of reinvigorating downtown Gardnerville, Main Street Gardnerville is still driven by volunteers working to make their town a better place.

“Main Street Gardnerville has seen some exciting changes over the past year,” said Meredith Fischer, current board president. “We are looking for a new program director to not only continue the existing success but to also take it to the next level.”

Main Street Gardnerville was the first community to receive the Main Street designation in Nevada and is an accredited Main Street America program. In addition to the program’s revitalization efforts, Main Street Gardnerville also serves as an advocate for over 100 businesses within the area.

“This position is part small business advocate, part community champion and part visionary,” Fischer said. “Every day you get to come to work and make a difference.”

Matt Bruback, the former director, accepted a position as the town manager of Genoa earlier this month.
