Stockbridge Main Street Advisory Advisory Board

The Stockbridge Main Street Program is one of the 90+ Main Street Programs across the State of Georgia and part of a national network of over 1,800 active Main Street entities.  This community-driven initiative focuses on conscientious revitalization of older, traditional business districts throughout the United States.  The underlying premise of the Main Street concept is to encourage economic development, within the context of historic preservation, in ways that are appropriate for today’s marketplace.  Main Street programs advocate a return to community self-reliance, local empowerment, and the rebuilding of traditional commercial districts based on their unique assets—distinctive architecture, a pedestrian-friendly environment, personal service, local ownership, and a sense of community.
