Faribault Main Street wants the city to go green. To make that happen, the organization, along with other partners, is hosting an informational event at the Village Theater, 20 Second St. N.W.

The program, which will be offered twice, at 3PM and 5PM Wednesday, January 27, will feature speakers and a Faribault-produced video introducing energy efficient renovation tactics. Those methods can work with historic preservation projects and apply to new construction and homes as well as renovations and commercial property.

Everyone is invited to this free event, funded through a grant from the Great Plains Institute. Faribault Main Street's partners include the city of Faribault, Great Plains Institute, Minnesota Main Street and GreenStep Cities.

For more information on the program, call (507) 334-4381 or email Nort Johnson at nort@faribaultmn.org or Kim Clausen at kclausen@ci.faribault.mn.us.
