Now Playing ... Monticello!

In our community, the downtown movie theater offers a unique opportunity for people to engage with each other. Many young people use the space to come together following a show making it a prime location for improvement. The Monticello Mayor's Youth Council and Next Generation Youth Advocates (NGYA) are participating in the My Community My Vision program and need your help to rejuvenate a small courtyard, setting the stage for a new and improved gathering space for our community.

This space will be designed by young people with a fresh perspective. By adding color and freshening up the space it will

  • invite people to stay a bit longer, visit more businesses and find more opportunities to connect.
  • be used as a nice lunch spot for surrounding business owners.
  • be used by families to gather and allow children to play on improved surfaces.
  • improve the safety of the area so that it can be accessible to all ages.

With your support, we can make this space the "star" of our downtown! To accomplish this we have started "A Creating Places Campaign" This campaign includes a matching grant from the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority!
