The Louisiana Main Street is a community-driven revitalization program designed to promote the historic and economic redevelopment of traditional commercial districts in Louisiana. The Main Street program improves all aspects of downtown, producing both tangible and intangible benefits. Strengthening public participation, improving economic management, and making downtown a fun place to visit are as critical to Main Street's future as recruiting new businesses and rehabilitating buildings.
The National Trust Main Street Center offers a comprehensive commercial district revitalization strategy known as the "Four Point Approach" that has been widely successful. This approach works together to build a sustainable and complete community revitalization effort. The four points are Organization, Promotion, Design, and Economic Restructuring. For more information Four Point Approach.
The Main Street program also participates in the Louisiana Main to Main event which is an annual statewide initiative of Louisiana Main Street designed to foster economic development and stimulate cultural tourism throughout the state of Louisiana.
