The Fredericksburg Economic Development Authority (EDA) in May 2011 appointed a six-member Main Street Exploratory Committee. The EDA in its 2010 - 2015 Strategic Plan identified the Main Street program as a model for strengthening the economy and vitality of our downtown. The Main Street program is a national network of over 1,600 towns and cities in over 40 states organized by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
The Main Street model for building economic vitality downtown is based on the Main Street Four Point Approach:
Promotion, creating a positive image that will enhance community pride and improve consumer and investor confidence in our commercial district.
