Johnson Works Community Organization

Johnson Works’ mission is to enhance the quality of life for people who live, work and visit Johnson by helping the downtown develop as a vital and diverse community center for commercial, cultural and entertainment activities, education, recreation, dining and residential use.

Our work falls into two major areas. The first area is the events/activities that will promote public use of the downtown and make Johnson a better place to live, conduct business and visit. The second broad category is marketing and promoting Johnson as a cultural, educational, recreational and shopping hub for residents and visitors.

Project Examples:

  • Johnson Holiday Jubilee – winter holiday event to celebrate the holidays and encourage shopping locally. Businesses stay open for extra hours and there are community activities all around the downtown.
  • Outdoor Sculpture Show – coordinate an exhibit of sculptures along Main Street
  • Downtown WI-FI + launch of

We meet every second Tuesday of the month in Lovin Cup Cafe at 8:30 a.m. All are welcome to attend!
