Grayson program receives Main Street accreditation

Grayson’s Main Street Grayson program has received accreditation by the Main Street America program for meeting rigorous performance standards set by the National Main Street Center. Each year, the program recognizes cities for their commitment to preservation-based economic development and community revitalization.

The organization’s performance is annually evaluated by the Georgia Main Street Program to identify local programs that meet 10 performance standards. Recognized communities are building comprehensive and sustainable revitalization efforts and include standards such as fostering strong public-private partnerships, securing an operating budget and tracking programs and schedules.

Among its duties, Main Street Grayson serves as host to many of the city’s events and is currently managing the Grayson BOOST initiative, the Grayson Arts & History Center, the Grayson Farmers’ Market, as well as marketing and advertising for the city.
