Can a Main Street program be run by the city?

Missouri Main Street Connection does not recommend a Main Street run by the city. In our experience the Main Street model works best when run as a nonprofit which allows for more community buy-in, ability to apply for grants, and more. However, it is possible to have a city run a Main Street program. Across the nation there are several examples including Sedalia Main Streets in Missouri. Contact our team to learn more.
