Mission & Vision

Mission Statement

Wayne Main Street, a Michigan Main Street program, is a nonprofit 501c3 organization. Our mission statement is “Making Downtown Wayne a vibrant place to live, work, and shop.”


Historic downtown Wayne is a gathering place for families, neighbors and visitors to enjoy hometown hospitality and Wayne pride through family activities and cultural events.

Our downtown is a safe, inviting and walkable destination that connects the Rouge River and parks with the surrounding neighborhoods. We proudly preserve and utilize our historic buildings.

Downtown Wayne is a business-friendly destination for residents and visitors to experience our unique and vibrant entertainment and business district.

Close-knit and engaged citizens of all ages come together to volunteer, socialize and positively impact our community using creativity and imagination.

In 2014, Wayne was chosen to become a Select Level Michigan Main Street Community so that we can utilize their proven methods for downtown revitalization.
