The purpose of the Locally Atchison Main Street Program is to enhance our downtown identity and heritage, to foster a center of activity for both business, housing and recreation, and to ensure economic stability and sustainability for the heart of Atchison through concentrated efforts of design, promotion, organization, and economic development.
Locally Atchison Main Street will develop a welcoming, thriving downtown neighborhood that attracts quality businesses, embraces downtown living, celebrates the arts, preserves our historical and cultural environs, and promotes quality events.
Every community and commercial district is different, with its own distinctive assets and sense of place. The Main Street Approach™ offers community-based revitalization initiatives with a practical, adaptable framework for downtown transformation that is easily tailored to local conditions. The Main Street Approach helps communities get started with revitalization, and grows with them over time. Strategies are implemented through comprehensive work in four broad areas, known as the Four Points listed below.
