Coastal Community Bank donates to Downtown Everett Association revitalization

Coastal Community Bank has donated $85,000 to the Downtown Everett Association.

The money will help the business improvement area group with its downtown revitalization work.

“We believe it is important to support our historic commercial districts because they are the heart, soul, and economic engines of our communities,” said Laura Byers, executive vice president and chief digital banking officer with the bank. “We have a special affection for Downtown Everett because it was the location of Coastal’s first branch, and we are still here today, 24 years later. Coastal is proud to support the work that the Downtown Everett Association will be doing with its Main Street program and the benefit it will provide for local businesses.”

The Downtown Everett Association area covers more than 500 businesses within the 39-square blocks of Everett’s downtown core. The agency operates programs such as the downtown flowers and holiday lighting started in 2020, and the trick-or-treating event.

“We at the DEA are extremely grateful for the generous support of Coastal Community Bank,” said Patrick Hall, DEA Board President. “This donation is proof of their commitment to the revitalization of Downtown Everett, and their confidence in our Main Street program to achieve it. Today they are living up to their reputation as a strong supporter of the communities they serve.”

Washington Main Street helps communities revitalize the economy, appearance, and image of their downtown districts using the successful Main Street ApproachTM, a comprehensive revitalization strategy built around a community’s unique heritage and attributes. As a designated Washington Main Street Community, donations made by businesses to the DEA are eligible for a 75% credit on the following year’s Business and Occupation taxes.
