Laurie Allen steps down as Main Street director

CHICKASHA — Chickasha Main Street Director Laurie Allen has resigned effectively immediately to pursue a career opportunity in the private sector.


"I got an offer from a company that has given me a very good business deal," she said.


Allen said she is leaving the Main Street organization and thinks the next director will be able to pick up where she left off.


"I plan to move into an ambassador position and help guide the next director," she said. "Now that a lot of the ground work is done we are open to moving forward."


Allen said she has enjoyed growing the Main Street program since she took it over in July and saw a lot of positive improvements over that time period.


"Trick or Treat on Main Street was a big success and our Christmas parade wound up the year up with a bang," she said.


Allen emphasized that she is not leaving Main Street on bad terms and she plans to continue helping the organization grow.


"On the local level this program is as big as it's growing to grow," she said. "We have to keep dollars flowing to the Main Street area and keep the city's interest."


Allen said those interested in participating in or contacting Main Street can do so by contacting members of the group's board.
