Minden, La is a classic "Small Town, USA" with a classic brick laden Main St. Minden's Main Street is making a comeback with more and more businesses opening. The prize money could be used to paint parking places along the street, add benches, and improve lighting. The money could also be used to assist local small businesses with a much needed facelift to further beautify the already charming Main St. The money could also be used to improve business signage along Main Street. I'd also like to see beautiful murals painted to add more decoration to our classic down town areas.
