Wyoming Main Street is a Main Street America coordinating program that promotes and manages the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Main Street program for the state of Wyoming.
Wyoming Main Street is a program of the Wyoming Business Council, managed by two staff members. Wyoming Main Street is not a grant program; it offers technical assistance for revitalization of commerical business districts and historic downtowns, by using the National Trust for Historic Preservation's Main Street Four Point Approach.
The four points of the Main Street approach work together to build sustainable revitalization efforts. The Main Street approach is incremental; it is not designed to produce immediate change. In order for a community to succeed, a long-term revitalization effort requires careful attention to every aspect of downtown.
The Main Street Four Point Approach is a community-driven and common-sense way to address a variety of issues and problems facing traditional business districts. The Main Street approach advocates a return to community self-reliance, local empower ment and the rebuilding of traditional commercial districts based on unique assets such as distinctive architecture, a pedestrian-friendly environment, personal service, local ownership and a sense of place. The underlying premise of the Main Street approach is to encourage economic development within the context of historic preservation.
