The Four-Point Main Street Approach

Image

DESIGN

Design means getting our downtown into top physical shape. Capitalizing on our assets such as historic buildings and the traditional downtown layout is just part of the story. Main Street also strives to create an inviting atmosphere through parking areas, signs, sidewalks, street lights and landscaping.

PROMOTION

Promotion means selling the image and promise of Main Street to all prospects. By marketing the district’s unique characteristics through advertising, retail promotional activities, special events and marketing campaigns. Fayetteville Main Street hopes to forge a positive image to shoppers, investors, new businesses and visitors.

ORGANIZATION

Organization means getting everyone working towards common goals. The tough work of building consensus and cooperation among the groups that have an important stake in our downtown can be eased by using the common-sense formula of a volunteer-driven program and an organizational structure of board and committees.

ECONOMIC RESTRUCTURING

Economic Restructuring means finding new or better purposes for Main Street enterprises. Helping existing downtown businesses expand and recruiting new ones. Fayetteville Main Street converts unused space into productive property and sharpens the competitiveness of its businesses.

Old buildings. New attitudes.

Fayetteville Main Street has been an active and vital part of the Community since 1990. Main Street revitalization is a comprehensive, incremental, self-help economic strategy that focuses on developing public-private partnerships in order to enhance community livability and job creation while maintaining the historic character of the district.
