The National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Main Street program offers an approach to downtown revitalization that has been successful in more than two thousand towns and cities nationwide.
Many approaches to downtown revitalization, from urban renewal to fix-up projects, have failed because they focused on just one or two problems, rather than dealing with the full spectrum of interrelated issues that affect traditional commercial districts.
The Main Street Four-Point Approach® is a community-driven, comprehensive strategy that encourages economic development through historic preservation in ways that are appropriate for today’s marketplace.
Our program and its committees are under the leadership of our Main Street/Downtown Development Authority Board. You can find out more about the board, including meeting minutes, here: Main Street DDA Board
We are always looking for new faces and ideas in our committees. If you want to get involved or would like more information, visit our volunteer page and send us a message!
