What is the Reedsport Main Street Program?
The Reedsport Main Street Program (RMSP), established on Dec 3, 2014, is based on the national Main Street Approach. Our program covers the downtown, midtown, and uptown main streets of Reedsport, our town on the south-central Oregon Coast.
We rely on community volunteers to guide the direction of our program, working together to improve Reedsport. Our volunteers form four committees that focus on different topics of our revitalization efforts. Find out more about our volunteer committees.
The Reedsport Main Street Program is a member of Oregon Main Street, a subsidiary of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

The Reedsport Main Street Program engages volunteers to make Reedsport, Oregon, a livable, sustainable community with a strong sense of place.
We are a comprehensive program, focusing on:
Drawing on the rich history and natural beauty of the area, Reedsport will build its reputation for being an inviting, warm, and livable community. Community activities will reflect a new sense of pride and optimism about the future.
Restored historic buildings and fully occupied storefronts will entice visitors to stop and explore all the hidden jewels Reedsport has to offer, including the Umpqua Discovery Center, delicious local dining, rivers for kayaking and salmon fishing, abundant wildlife, and scenic hikes. New and existing destination businesses that appeal to visitors and serve as community gathering spots will bring energy and vitality to the district.
Uptown, downtown, and midtown will be connected through beautiful landscaping, wayfinding signage, and streetscape improvements that add to the community’s character.
Reedsport’s logging and fishing history will be reflected in events and activities that make full use of the improved Rainbow Plaza, as well as through an expanded chain saw art sculpture program.
