The Main Street Douglasville program committees correspond to the four points of the Main Street approach - Organization, Design, Promotion, and Economic Vitality.
The Organization committee is the component of the Main Street Program that manages the key elements of the program. The Organization committee initiates fundraising opportunities, maintains and sustains the committees, and assists with strategic planning.
The Design committee's goal is to enhance the attractiveness of the business district through historic building rehabilitation, street and alley clean-up, colorful banners, landscaping, and lighting thus improving the physical image of the downtown helping it become a quality place to shop, work, walk, invest in, and live.
The Promotions committee creates excitement downtown. Street festivities, parades, retail events and image development campaigns are some of the ways Main Street encourages customer traffic. Promotion involves marketing and branding the downtown image to shoppers, investors and visitors.
The Economic Vitality committee analyzes current market forces to develop long-term plans and solutions for downtown revitalization. Recruiting new businesses, creatively converting unused space for new uses and sharpening the competitiveness of Main Street’s traditional merchants are examples of economic vitality activities.
