Connecticut Main Street Center
At Connecticut Main Street Center we help inspire great Connecticut downtowns, Main Street by Main Street. We serve as the champion and leading resource for vibrant and sustainable Main Streets as foundations for healthy communities.
We bring historic downtowns throughout Connecticut back to life by strengthening our downtowns and village centers. At the local level, we share our expertise and give people the tools to create powerful partnerships and vibrant communities. At the state level, we are the voice for programs and policies that advance the Main Street way of life in Connecticut.
Our work results in Main Streets where people of all ages, incomes and cultures can live, work, shop, and spend leisure time. Our Main Streets provide jobs, neighborhood services, and housing for all income levels while preserving historic buildings and filling them with a new mix of uses. Our Main Streets are increasingly walkable, promoting a healthy lifestyle. They generate tax revenues, create jobs and promote economic development for their locality and for the state.
