About Us

Across Mid-Michigan, people are banding together to bring a positive change to the communities in which they live. 360 Main Street is a grassroots effort to bring recognition to these folks and their accomplishments, and to do so in a way that encourages the involvement of all. Our name, 360 Main Street, is metaphor for our mission, which is to present our visitors with a revolutionary, 360 degree view of the streets on which we live.
