Main Street Advisory Board — The Stockbridge Main Street Program is a new, community-driven initiative that focuses on conscientious revitalization of the Historic Downtown area. Based on the Main Street Four-Point Approach™ which explores the four areas of DowntownDesign, Economic Restructuring, Promotion and Organization, the underlying premise of the Main Street concept is to encourage economic development, within the context of historic preservation, in ways that are appropriate for today’s marketplace. Main Street programs across the nation advocate a return to community self-reliance, local empower-ment, and the rebuilding of traditional commercial districts based on their unique assets—distinctive architecture, a pedestrian-friendly environment, personal service, local ownership,and a sense of community. The Main Street Advisory Board is comprised of 9 members and will meet once per month (oras necessary). Board member appointments are for two year terms.
