Background

Projects and Programs

ADHDA uses the Main Street Approach® which is a locally driven, comprehensive approach to the commercial historic district revitalization.

Following the practical and comprehensive model capitalizing on downtown’s unique assets, the Main Street Approach® is based on a four point strategy in the areas Organization, Promotion, Design, and Business Development.

ADHDA uses the four point strategy to guide many of our projects and programs.
