LaPlante visits Le Mars’ Historic Downtown


Kathy LaPlante of Main Street America visited Le Mars businesses Tuesday.  She’s pictured here at the Wells Ice Cream Parlor and Visitors’ Center.

La Plante also got a look at one of the loft apartments above Claussen’s.  She says lofts are a great idea for enhancing development of businesses downtown.   Now, she says it’s time for  Iowa communities to encourage downtown building owners to improve their properties.
