Small Town Main Street Program
The Small Town Main Street program addresses the growing number of small, rural towns that need downtown development assistance but are not likely, due to size or resource limitations, to pursue the regular Main Street program. Selected communities receive on-site technical assistance from the Small Town Main Street staff including:
- Organizational development
- Market analysis
- Business assistance
As in the regular Main Street program, no funds come with the designation.
New N.C. Small Town Main Street Communities Selected
The N.C. Department of Commerce announced on Aug. 12 that six new communities have been chosen to participate in the Office of Urban Development's 2013 Small Town Main Street program. Belhaven, Hayesville, Marshville, Mayodan, Robersonville and Valdese were selected through a competitive application process that included 18 communities from across the state. Designation of these six new towns brings the total number of the state's Small Town Main Street communities to 50.
