Creating high-quality places and build stronger communities.

SMSA and Oregon Main Street use the successful Main Street® methodology developed by the National Main Street Center as its foundation for assistance. The Main Street Approach® is centered around Transformation Strategies that articulate a focused, deliberate path to revitalizing or strengthening a downtown or commercial district’s economy. A program’s work on Transformation Strategies should be organized around the Four Points: Economic Vitality, Design, Promotion, and Organization.
