Main Street Program

Main Street Program Helper, Utah - Main Street, 2015

 

GREAT NEWS!!! SB 194 passed in February 2021! The bill establishes the Main Street program in Utah and is allocated $355,000 of one-time funds. We could not have done this without your support and assistance! Thank you to all who reached out to their reps to voice their support! We look forward to developing a tiered, statewide Utah Main Street program and will keep you posted as we move forward.

What is the Main Street Program? It pairs preservation-based economic development with community driven, comprehensive downtown revitalization.

Why Main Street?  In Utah, we lack a coordinated, efficient, and productive MainStreet revitalization initiative. A cohesive Main Street Approach would provide a state-supported downtown revitalization framework that’s locally-driven and implemented and that can serve all types of Utah communities, big and small alike.

Positive Outcomes:  The program enables a wide range of success metrics, such as raised property values, increased local tax revenue, stabilized historic districts, job growth and creation, rehabilitated buildings, decreased vacancies, and public and private investment.
