Directors and others with the N.C. Main Street program from across the state gathered in downtown Elizabeth City this week for a series of meetings.
N.C. Main Street is part of the Main Street America program of the nonprofit National Main Street Center, a subsidiary of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
The National Main Street Center leads a movement committed to strengthening communities through preservation-based economic development in older and historic downtowns and neighborhood commercial districts.
A total of 70 communities in North Carolina participate in the Main Street program, including Elizabeth City. Manteo was chosen to join the program this year.
Debbie Malenfant, Executive Director of Elizabeth City Downtown Inc., joined us to talk more about the N.C. Main Street directors meeting and share some of the other exciting things coming up in Elizabeth City.
