Main Street is a national movement that, since 1980, has taken root in more than 2,000 communities. It is a grass-roots movement that has spurred $54 billion in reinvestment, creating 473.439 new jobs, and resulting in the rehabilitation of 236,418 buildings and 109,693 new businesses in traditional commercial districts. Statistics show that for every dollar a Main Street community spends to support the operation of the program, $18 is reinvested back into the community.
Our motto is: Historic Preservation = Economic Development
Who we are:
The mission of Olde Towne Slidell Main Street is to encourage entrepreneurship and to preserve our historic district. We envision Olde Towne as a vibrant and sustainable place to live, work, and play. Through the Main Street Four-Point Approach® we will educate and work with the public and pri-vate sectors to create and build a volunteer driven, historic preserva-tion based revitalization program that will protect our historic architecture, strengthen our business community, respect the environment, create gathering places for friends and family, hold outstanding events, and honor our history. Olde Towne Slidell Main Street is proud of its dedicated volunteers who give freely of their time and talents to drive projects and events to help make Olde Towne and our community the best it can be. Without them, our Main Street program cannot exist.
