DC’s Newest Main Street


On Oct. 16, 3 p.m., Mayor Bowser launched a neighborhood revitalization program in Lower Georgia Avenue, designating the area as the newest Main Street in the DC Main Streets program. This initiative, which promotes the revitalization of traditional business districts, has generated more than 2,000 jobs in the last two years. DC Main Streets are organized and led by local volunteers and community development professionals who lead sustainable, community-driven efforts to promote economic development, strengthen neighborhoods and preserve the historical character of District neighborhoods. dslbd.dc.gov/service/DCMS.
