Conyers, GA – The Conyers Main Street Program has been designated as an accredited 2015 National Main Street Program for meeting the commercial district revitalization performance standards set by the National Main Street Center, a subsidiary of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
The Conyers Main Street Program’s performance is evaluated annually by the Georgia Department of Community Affairs’ Office of Downtown Development, which works in partnership with the National Main Street Center to identify local programs that meet ten performance standards. These standards reflect the program’s commitment to historic preservation and community revitalization through the Main Street Four Pont Approach.
Conyers was first named a Main Street City in 2007 by the Georgia Department of Community Affairs and has achieved National Main Street Accreditation every year since being named a Main Street City.
“National accreditation affirms that the organization is meeting all of the necessary criteria to be successful in its efforts to revitalize Olde Town Conyers,” said Main Street Manager Brittany Evans. “From promotional events like our upcoming Taste of Conyers and Conyers Car Show and training opportunities for our new board members to partnering with the Conyers Downtown Development Authority on preservation initiatives like façade grants for eligible downtown businesses, we are on the right track to sustaining and preserving our historic Olde Town Conyers.”
The Conyers Main Street Board of Directors meets on the second Thursday of each month at 12:00 p.m. to discuss revitalization efforts among the Olde Town merchants and historic district. Meetings are open to the public and the public is encouraged to attend. Main Street board members include Chairman Scott Hartsell, Brandi Wells, J.P. Alexander, Debbie Nash, Caleb Delong, Alec Smith and Dr. John Fountain.
