"The Main Street movement has transformed the way communities think about the revitalization and management of their commercial districts.
The Main Street Four-Point Approach® is a community-driven, comprehensive strategy used to revitalize downtown and neighborhood business districts throughout the United States. It is a common-sense way to address the variety of issues and problems that challenge traditional business districts.
As the national leader, the National Trust Main Street Center® leads a coast-to-coast network of more than 1,200 state, regional, and local programs, powerfully linked through a preservation-based strategy for rebuilding the places and enterprises that create sustainable, vibrant, and unique communities.
Throughout the nation, communities are using the Main Street approach to revitalize their traditional commercial districts." -www.preservationnation.org
