The Arizona Main Street Program, housed within Arizona State Parks/State Historic Preservation Office, works with designated Main Street communities throughout Arizona to implement the Main Street Four‐Point Approach® developed by the National Trust for Historic Preservation in 1980.
Main Street Four-Point Approach
The Main Street Four‐Point Approach is a preservation‐based economic development tool that addresses the variety of issues and problems that challenge traditional commercial districts. The four points – Design, Economic Restructuring, Organization, and Promotion – work together to build a sustainable and complete community revitalization effort.
The Arizona Main Street Program provides local communities with information, technical assistance, networking, and other services to implement the Main Street Four‐Point Approach:
- Selects local communities with traditional commercial districts for participation in the program
- Provides technical assistance and training to local Main Street communities
- Provides networking and advocacy to local Main Street programs
- Serves as a liaison with the National Main Street Center
- Identifies local programs that meet the standards of National Main Street Program Accreditation
