One of the many services that Virginia Main Street (VMS) provides designated Main Street communities is access to the technical expertise available from the National Trust Main Street Center (NTMSC). Although the work of the NTMSC is always community specific, the observations and recommendations that are included in the reports are valuable resources for any community in Virginia that is attempting to implement the Main Street Four-Point Approach® as a strategy for downtown revitalization.
We think that the observations and recommendations from the NTMSC staff are great stuff, and we want to share them with the VMS community. Therefore, at the top of the blog page you will now find the “Reports” tab. This tab will take you to our new VMS reports page.
To initiate our new reports page, we have added the eight “Economic Restructuring and Technical Assistance Visit Reports” recently completed by NTMSC Senior Program Officer Todd Barman. Additional reports will be posted when they become available.
