Main Street America has released a new Main Street Approach Design Handbook, the first in a suite of updated Four Point guides.

It explores the range of issues that impact the physical characteristics of a downtown and provides you with a roadmap for navigating the set of choices involved in implementing holistic design principles to ensure they complement the overall strategy for your downtown.
