The City of Rosenberg welcomed its first ever Main Street Manager on Monday, February 23rd, when Dan Kelleher joined the City team to lead the newly established Rosenberg Main Street Program. Kelleher comes to Rosenberg from the city of Vernon, Texas, where he served as their Director of Tourism and Main Street Services.

“We are excited to welcome Dan to Rosenberg,” said Economic Development Director Randall Malik. “His background includes a demonstrated history of innovative and effective leadership across a wide variety of economic and community development roles, and we’re ready to utilize his experience in facilitating more wonderful projects and development in our historic downtown.”

“I’m excited to join local community leaders and downtown stakeholders in our joint effort to revitalize the downtown district,” said Kelleher. “We’ll start meeting right away. We’re going to get going promptly to identify and achieve some downtown enhancement goals, and it’s going to be fun!”

Rosenberg was named one of two new 2015 Main Street cities by the Texas Historical Commission in January. Rosenberg now joins 88 other active Main Street cities across the state in the program designed to assist with downtown revitalization through organization, design, promotion and economic restructuring.
