Our organization follows the Main Street Four Point Approach® – a philosophy, a program, and a proven comprehensive approach to commercial revitalization of historic business districts. This approach has been implemented in more than 2,000 cities and towns across the nation with the help of statewide revitalization programs and the National Main Street Center at the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The success of the Main Street approach is based on its comprehensive nature. By carefully integrating four points into a practical neighborhood business district management strategy, stakeholders in a local Main Street program will produce fundamental changes in a community’s economic base.
