Main Street Workshop

January 15, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Join us for lunch and an opportunity to hear how the new statewide Main Street Alabama organization can help your community.

Main Street is a program that brings jobs, dollars, and people to small towns and commercial districts. It uses a national model to leverage private investment and capitalize on the unique appeal of historic downtowns. The result is one of the most successful economic revitalization strategies in the country.

During this session, Mary Helmer, the Main Street Alabama State Coordinator, will introduce the new Main Street Alabama organization and discuss how it can help your community in four core areas:

  • Broad-based public-private community financial and volunteer support
  • Economic restructuring to align with current market opportunities
  • Design that capitalizes on distinctive historic character
  • Promotion that uses community character and identity for marketplace differentiation to attract businesses, tourists, and shoppers.
