Murray, KY – Paducah city commissioners voted last night to abolish the current Paducah Renaissance Alliance and re-create it as a city department called Main Street. Officials took the step as part of ongoing efforts to determine the best way to promote and develop the downtown and Lower Town areas. With the approval, the four-member PRA staff will report to the City Manager. The nine-member PRA board will function in an advisory capacity. The new Main Street department will continue to use the logo and Paducah Renaissance Alliance name in its marketing.
