Main Street Approach
The Main Street Approach® is a unique preservation-based economic development tool that enables communities to revitalize downtown and neighborhood business districts by leveraging local assets – from historic, cultural, and architectural resources to local enterprises and community pride.
The success of the Main Street Approach® is based on its comprehensive nature. By carefully integrating four points (Design, Economic Vitality, Organization, and Promotion) into a practical downtown management strategy, a local Main Street program will produce fundamental changes in a community’s economic base.
Washington Main Street
As a comprehensive economic development tool, the Main Street Approach® is the foundation many communities in Washington and nationwide use to strengthen their historic downtown and commercial districts.
Developing such a strategy takes a knowledgeable team of diverse individuals working together on their downtown and the best way to work together as a team is to use the same playbook, such as this guide from Washington Main Street.
