Board Chari, Main Street Coalition
President & Principal, Wulfe & Co.

E.D. Wulfe

In 1997, the Main Street Coalition was formed to transform Main Street into Houston’s signature boulevard. The initial focus was been the seven miles of Main Street that connect the Texas Medical Center, Rice University, Hermann Park, Reliant Park, the Museum District, two Houston Community College campuses, Midtown and the Central Business District. Here, the Main Street corridor offers civic assets that are the envy of any city anywhere. Much has been accomplished by the Main Street Coalition and its many partners, but more needs to be done for the Main Street corridor to continue to be an engine for change for Houston in the 21st century and beyond.Visit Main Street Coalition and South Main Alliance Joint Efforts with Main Street Coalition for more information.
