Help Casa Grande Light Up the Night

The Arizona city of Casa Grande is competing for a share of $2 million in historic-preservation funding — and your vote can help the city get it.

Vote Your Main Street — a collaboration between National Geographic, American Express and the National Trust for Historic Preservation — features 25 American cities hoping to improve their historic sites. Until the end of October, visitors to the Vote Your Main Street page can vote for which project should receive a share of the funds, which are being provided by American Express.

Casa Grande is the only Arizona city on the list. It proposes to create a new "Vintage Neon Sign Park" to link the business and arts districts in the city. "The park will serve as a vibrant downtown destination while also building grassroots support for historic preservation," the proposal reads.

As of this writing, Casa Grande was fifth in votes, behind proposals for Birmingham, Alabama; West Hollywood, California; Cincinnati; and Valley Junction, Iowa. But surely Arizona Highways' loyal readers can help Casa Grande move up on the list.

Those who vote will also have a chance to enter to win a trip to Los Angeles, New York or Miami from National Geographic.


Would be great for the community

I vote for this up and coming-gorgeous town of Casa Grande to recieve the vintage sign park. This stimulates the economy, while bringing growth and harmony to the community.

Vintage Neon Park would be great for the town.
