The Town of Leesburg is now an Exploring Main Street community with the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD).
Main Street is a national model created by the National Main Street Center (NMSC), a subsidiary of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. It is designed to bring jobs, dollars, and people to small towns and commercial districts while leveraging private investment and capitalizing on the unique appeal of historic downtowns.
The program is divided into four (4) Community Revitalization Program Tiers, which provide increasing opportunities and responsibilities depending upon the level selected.
In September, the Town applied for and received a Tier 2 designation, “Exploring Main Street”. This requires a non-competitive application identifying a specific area for designation, supported by a Town Council resolution, and allows a locality to become eligible for several grants and provides access to additional state resources.
“Becoming an official Main Street Community at this level will provide the Town and local business community access to a variety of resources,” said Economic Development Director Russell Seymour. This would include grants, consulting services, and training tied to commercial district revitalization. “It will also enable participants to determine interest in further advancing this program.”
The Virginia Main Street program has created more than 7,000 businesses, 24,000 jobs, and has generated more than $1.8 billion in public and private investment in Virginia.
