Moline Centre Main Street was created in 2009 and became a division under the city in 2010. The City of Moline contracted the Quad Cities Chamber of Commerce to administer the program in the spring of 2014. The program -- including staff, activities and marketing -- is funded in large part from two downtown Special Service Areas.
Property owners within the two SSAs pay additional property taxes that can be spent only within to benefit their district.
Tenants and building owners within Moline Centre also have access to development funds from a number of sources.
