The Main Street Four Point Approach (R)

The Main Street Four Point Approach (R)
As a unique economic development tool, the Main Street Four-Point Approach® is the foundation for local initiatives to revitalize their districts by leveraging local assets—from cultural or architectural heritage to local enterprises and community pride.

The four points of the Main Street approach work together to build a sustainable and complete community revitalization effort. There is a committee to represent each of the four points that meets monthly to ensure their goals.
