Virginia Main Street designates four new communties

Governor Terry McAuliffe has announced the designation of four communities in the Virginia Main Street (VMS) program, administered by the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD). The newly-designated communities include the town of Wytheville, the cities of Danville and Lexington and Gloucester Courthouse in Gloucester County.  The communities were selected based on their Main Street organization’s preparedness to identify, plan and implement programs and services for the defined downtown district, the target area of responsibility.

By leveraging our downtown assets and spurring public and private investments in these communities, we are sparking entrepreneurship and job creation in the heart of the Commonwealth and making strides in our efforts to build a new Virginia economy.” — Governor Terry McAuliffe
