How long does a Main Street program last?

Revitalization is an ongoing process, not a project with a completion date. The principles of the Main Street Approach™ lend to local Main Street programs becoming sustainable organizations that are comprehensive, action-oriented, and work incrementally. Downtown needs continual support because economic conditions change and the built environment always needs regular maintenance and improvements. Thus, in Missouri, there are long standing Main Street programs with over 30 years in operation that impact their community.
