Three New Mexico MainStreet communities have launched efforts to adopt transformative economic development strategies to guide projects under the “Refreshed” Main Street Four-Point Approach™.

Nob Hill MainStreet, after viewing the NMMS Asset-Based Economic Development webinars, has identified four key strategies that focus on infrastructure, mixed-used development, arts & culture and enhancing the district’s retail niche.

Carlsbad MainStreet, with support from NMMS, convened a half-day board retreat to reformulate their existing work plan under two strategies that concentrate on capturing local consumer dollars and eliminating “leakage”, as well as enhancing the district’s opportunities as a food destination.

Historic Bridge MainStreet, South Valley graduated to Start-Up MainStreet Community and hosted a community input session and day-long planning workshop with a NMMS Resource Team. Nearly 30 individuals participated over three days to identify projects that expand the community as a destination for arts, cultural and heritage tourism via enhanced business development and entrepreneurial ventures.
