Main Street' Marks For Revitalized Towns

September 12, 1990

Gov. William Donald Schaefer recently announced the Maryland Main Street Designation Program to recognize small towns committed to revitalization.

Each year, the program, through a competitive process, will designate roads in several communities as "Maryland Main Streets" to applaud the towns' hard work in maintaining their commercial and historical heritage.

The program, administered by the Community Assistance Agency of the Department of Housing and Community Development, will involve a number of state agencies.

The Department of Housing and Community Development will use the Maryland Historical Trust to identify historic properties and the resources available to aid in their revitalization, while the Department of Transportation will set up special assistance to perform road, sidewalk and other improvements on main streets.

The Department of Economic and Employment Development will assist in promotion and tourism efforts, and provide business financing, while street designs and plans will be formulated by the Maryland Office of Planning. Information: 974-2051 or 974-2316.
