WHAT IS THE CARROLLTON MAIN STREET PROGRAM?


Through the four-point approach, the Carrollton Main Street Program is addressing all of the concerns of the historic downtown business district.

These four points are:

Economic Restructuring: This involves a process of examining current economic and marketing forces affecting the downtown and determining what mix of retail, professional services, and housing will prosper in the area.

Design: Through design, the physical appearance of the downtown is improved. Activities conducted under this point include building and façade renovations in keeping with the historic character of the building, improvements to and maintenance of public space, appropriate signage and attractive display of merchandise.

Promotion: Promotion involves projecting a positive, unified image of the downtown efforts. These include developing an image of a vibrant downtown, innovative retail promotions, and special events.

Organization: This includes the development and maintenance of a single body to govern the local program and to develop a cooperative spirit among key individuals involved in the revitalization efforts.

The mission of the Carrollton Main Street Program is to protect and maintain the historic architecture and culture of our Riverfront, Downtown, and Historic District while revitalizing the use and development of these areas. To work with the public and private sectors of our community to achieve these goals.

Purpose of the Main Street Program

The Carrollton Main Street Program is a non-profit organization governed by an 11-member board of directors. The Program was created to establish a partnership between business owners, local and county government officials, residents, property owners and community action groups dedicated to the revitalization of the central business district of Carrollton.

What has been accomplished so far?

In the five years that the Carrollton Main Street Program has been in existence, we have worked with the City to obtain grant money from both Renaissance Kentucky and the Transportation Cabinet to fund two major programs. TE-21 funds from the Transportation Cabinet’s Division of Multimodal Programs have provided the city with the funds to institute the streetscape project which has produced new sidewalks and lighting in the downtown area. Renaissance Kentucky funding has allowed the establishment of a Façade Grant program which has made funds available to property owners in the downtown area to redo their storefronts and make other improvements to their property within the Renaissance area. To date, six buildings have received the benefits of physical revitalization through the program and several others are ready to begin projects.
