Who is RevitalizeYC?
RevitalizeYC was founded in April of 2018 as a nonprofit 501(c)3 focused on the revitalization efforts of Yates Center, KS and Woodson County. Our primary goal is to promote community growth and development, while still maintaining the distinctive small-town character of Yates Center. Our service to the community will present innovative solutions that will be executed to provide better jobs, education, quality of life, and economic prosperity. Below are the main objectives we will strive to make progress in. We can't wait to see what we can accomplish as a community as we work to revitalize our community.
To provide strategic planning and smart growth strategies used to
encourage economic development where businesses and industries can thrive in the community.
To preserve community heritage by protecting rural landscape, historic architecture/landmarks, and enhance civic pride through community initiatives.
To create recreation and tourist opportunities that will bring investments and people into the community.
To sponsor, host and/or participate in events and activities that promote the revitalization of Yates Center and Woodson County.
To develop educational opportunities for both youth and adults that promote economic prosperity within the families of Woodson County.
Build a Healthy Community
To execute a “healthy communities initiative” where all residents have access to quality education, safe and healthy homes, adequate employment, transportation, physical activity, nutrition, and quality healthcare.
"Small towns across the country are fighting for their survival with the odds stacked against them. But what happens if together, we join that fight? Small towns may never be what they once were, and the real question is, how can they reinvent themselves to become something better!" -Small Business Revolution, Main Street
Our mission is to facilitate, promote, and support the revitalization of Yates Center and Woodson County by fostering economic development, preserving community heritage, and enhancing civic pride.
These goals will be updated as we progress throughout this year.
