From the Mayor’s Office:
“Today, Mayor Muriel Bowser announced three new members to the DC Main Streets program: Destination Congress Heights, Tenleytown Main Streets, and Van Ness Main Streets.
“Main Streets helps local business corridors reach their full potential, by fostering smart growth and attracting new customers.” said Mayor Muriel Bowser. “These three communities are prime for future success. My Administration will continue to invest in our neighborhood businesses because they, in turn, invest in our people.”
The mission of DC Main Streets is to lead sustainable, community-driven revitalization programs that promote economic development, strengthen their neighborhoods and improve the quality of life for residents. A program of the Department of Small and Local Business Development (DSLBD), DC Main Streets serves as the citywide coordinating program that provides services and funding for the 10 Main Streets programs in the District of Columbia. These programs revitalize communities by retaining and recruiting businesses, improving commercial properties and streetscapes, and attracting consumers. (more…)
