Eight Guiding Principles

  1. Comprehensive. A comprehensive approach, including activity in each of Main Street's Four Points, is essential. 
  2. Incremental. Successful Revitalization programs begin with basic, simple activities that demonstrate that "new things are happening".
  3. Self-Help. No one will save your Main Street. Local leaders must have the will and desire to mobilize local resources and talent. 
  4. Partnerships. Both the public and private sectors have a vital interest in the district and must work together to achieve common goals. 
  5. Identifying and Capitalizing on Existing Assets. Business districts must capitalize on the assets that make them unique. 
  6. Quality. Emphasize quality in every aspect of the revitalization program. Quality over quantity. 
  7. Change. Shift public perceptions and practices to support and sustain the revitalization process. 
  8. Implementation. Show visible results that can only come from completing projects.
