This powerpoint presentation explains the Main Street Four Point Approach

  1. Organization involves building a Main Street® framework that is well represented by business and property owners, bankers, citizens, public officials, chambers of commerce, and other local economic development organizations. Everyone must work together to renew downtown. A strong organization provides the stability to build and sustain a long-term effort.

  2. Promotion creates excitement downtown. Street festivals, parades, retail events, and image development campaigns are some of the ways Main Street® encourages customer traffic. Promotion involves marketing an enticing image to shoppers, investors, and visitors.

  3. Design enhances the attractiveness of the business district. Historic building rehabilitation, street and alley clean-up, colorful banners, landscaping, and lighting all improve the physical image of the downtown as a quality place to shop, work, walk, invest in, and live. Design improvements result in a reinvestment of public and private dollars to downtown.

  4. Economic Restructuring involves analyzing current market forces to develop long-term solutions. Recruiting new businesses, creatively converting unused space for new uses, and sharpening the competitiveness of Main Street's traditional merchants are examples of economic restructuring activities.
