Downtowns are complex. They incorporate businesses, public spaces, various means of transportation, art, activities and more, all of which need to be maintained and managed. So what’s the best way to put the pieces together to create a downtown that’s clean, safe, inviting and fun?
At CMSC we know it can be confusing and even overwhelming to address the many aspects that create a great downtown. That’s why we provide information and resources on how to cultivate the six core components of a healthy downtown utilizing the 4-Point Approach to Main Street Management.
To help address these core components, our members also benefit from customized one-on-one assistance and peer learning opportunities. Through membership in the CT Main Street network, we teach people how to take advantage of their community’s unique assets, build fruitful public/private partnerships, and support a thriving small business ecosystem.
