Downtown Main Street

The Town of Angier became a designated Main Street Program in 2018. Our new Main Street Downtown Manager joined us on January 2, 2019 and will be using the Main Street America Four Point Approach to protect the historic character of our town and promote shared prosperity. Our approach is comprehensive, inclusive, place-based and people-focused.

The National Main Street America Program has been helping revitalize older and historic commercial districts for more than 35 years. It is a proven method of revitalizing and preserving small towns like Angier by building a stronger community through preservation-based economic development.

Transformation Strategies are implemented through comprehensive work in four broad areas, known as the Four Points.

Economic Vitality focuses on capital, incentives, and other economic and financial tools to assist new and existing businesses, catalyze property development, and create a supportive environment for entrepreneurs and innovators that drive local economies.

Design supports a community's transformation by enhancing the physical and visual assets that set the commercial district apart.

Promotion positions the downtown or commercial district as the center of the community and hub of economic activity, while creating a positive image that showcases a community’s unique characteristics.

Organization involves creating a strong foundation for a sustainable revitalization effort, including cultivating partnerships, community involvement, and resources for the district.

We are looking for volunteers who care about Angier and want to see progressive changes that help preserve our small town feel while creating economic vitality for the downtown businesses. If you would like to join us in our planning and implementation of the program, please complete the Main Street Advisory Board Application and we will be in contact with you.

A strong, vibrant and inclusive community needs input and involvement from our strongest assets……the people of Angier.

As a Main Street America Affiliate™, Town of Angier is part of a national network of more than 1,200 neighborhoods and communities who share both a commitment to creating high-quality places and to building stronger communities through preservation-based economic development.
