The efforts of The Moultrie Main Street Program have earned it recognition for excellence in commercial district revitalization by meeting performance standards set by the National Trust for Historic Preservation's National Main Street Center in Washington D.C.
"Effective Main Street revitalization programs create vibrant commercial districts with many different uses, where people come not only to shop, but also to work, live and have fun," said Kennedy Smith, director of the National Trust's Main Street Center.
"By stimulating economic vitality and adapting historic buildings for new uses, Main Street districts are places that define community," Smith said. "The criteria for the National Main Street program designation reflect the activities needed in one that meets the basic standards of performance for a commercial district revitalization and management organization. Designation of Moultrie, Georgia as a National Main Street Program reflects that it meets these national performance criteria for good management practice."
