Holly Springs earns Main Street re-accreditation

The Holly Springs Main Street Program has earned re-accreditation from the Main Street America program for preservation-based economic development and revitalization.

“During 2016, the city continued to make improvements to infrastructure in anticipation of the redevelopment of the Town Center area,” said Main Street Director Erin Honea. “Sidewalk and streetscape improvements were completed to improve pedestrian connectivity, and preliminary engineering began on a downtown bypass project.”

Holly Springs has been an accredited Main Street America program since 2015. Its performance is evaluated annually by the Georgia Main Street Program, working with the National Main Street Center to identify local programs that meet 10 performance standards. These standards include pursuing public-private partnerships, securing an operating budget, tracking progress and preserving historic buildings.

The National Main Street Center is a nonprofit subsidiary of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
