Monroe Main Street

The Main Street Approach

Preservation positively affects jobs, property values, tourism, downtown and neighborhood revitalization, affordable housing and environmental sustainability.

Main Street is one of the most effective economic development programs ever created. Developed over 35 years ago, the Main Street four-point framework has a proven record in over 2,000 communities of creating new jobs and businesses while also rehabilitating countless historic buildings and revitalizing thousands of main streets and disinvested commercial corridors.
