What is Main Street
 

Main Street Four Point Approach

DESIGN
Enhancing the visual image of Downtown, giving special attention to signs, storefronts, landscapes and displays, and accenting those features that truly make the Downtown area unique.

DESIGN
Building partnerships between the public and private sectors to develop the untapped potential of the Downtown area and to solve mutual problems. These Downtown stakeholders will develop and maintain a fiscally sound and well-managed organization capable of sustaining a long-term revitalization effort.

DESIGN
Marketing the Downtown as a dynamic and exciting place to shop, work, visit, live, play, do business, and invest in, thus strengthening the positive image of Downtown.

DESIGN
Improving the economic appeal of Downtown by strengthening its existing assets and diversifying its economic base. Recruiting new business; converting unused space into housing, offices, or retail establishments; and analyzing market trends accomplish this.

Main Street West Memphis is successful because of the energy; enthusiasm; and support of volunteers, board and committee members and community supporters.

FOUR GOOD REASONS TO
REVITALIZE OUR DOWNTOWN

Downtown is the most visible indicator of community pride.
It is either an asset or liability to a community.
You just can’t hide it.

Downtown represents millions of dollars of government investment in
public property and infrastructure.
Would it be wise to turn our back on that investment?

Our Downtown serves as a “commercial park” for small businesses in the
same way that an industrial park serves manufacturers.
In most communities, the Downtown is a major employer,
and in many cases it is the largest.

Our Downtown is the core of its community heritage.
Our history is expressed in its architecture.
By encouraging economic development through historic preservation,
our legacy will pass on to future generations.
