Main Street Program


The Colorado Main Street Program offers support for community-led downtown revitalization. We help communities thrive by providing a customizable framework to focus efforts, energy, and resources.

Colorado Main Street is a Main Street America™ Coordinating Program. As a Main Street America™ Coordinating Program, Colorado Main Street helps to lead a powerful, grassroots network of over 40 Coordinating Programs and over 1,200 neighborhoods and communities across the country committed to creating high-quality places and to building stronger communities through preservation-based economic development.

The Main Street Approach


Getting everyone working toward the same goal through community engagement.


Marketing a positive image of downtown and encouraging consumers and investors to live, work, shop, play, and invest in the Main Street district.


Putting Main Street into top physical shape, from rehabilitating historic buildings to attractive window displays and landscaping.


Strengthening existing economic assets while expanding and diversifying its economic base to create jobs, and respond to consumer needs.




The Main Street Approach is customizable, accessible, and holistic.
