The Approach

at a glance

~The Main Street Approach is centered around the Transformation Strategies. A Transformation Strategy articulates a focused, deliberate path to revitalizing or strengthening a downtown or commercial district's economy.

~ A program's work on Transformation Strategies should be organized around the Four Points: Economic Vitality, Design, Promotion, and Organization

~A revitalization program's work - and its Transformation Strategies - need to be informed by a solid undstanding of local and regional market data, and sustained and inclusive community engagement.
