About Canby Main Street
Canby Main Street was formed in 2010 in an effort to support downtown revitalization in Canby through Main Street America's 4-
Mission Statement: To carry out the Canby Urban Renewal Plan to ensure economic vitality of the downtown commercial district, revitalize buildings and street environments, and enhance Canby's identity through promotion of downtown.
Where is our Focus? Canby Main Street is a program of the Canby Urban Renewal Agency. As a program of the Urban Renewal Agency, our boundary is within the Canby Urban Renewal District and the Downtown Canby Plan Design Overlay District. Since this is a rather large area for such a new program, for now Canby Main Street is focusing its energies in the historic business district of downtown Canby.
Four-Point Approach ©: By following the National Trust’s Main Street Four-Point Approach: organization, promotion, design and economic restructuring, Main Street programs nationwide have been responsible for the revitalization of commercial corridors and communities. Canby Main Street operates very similarly to the national model and is working on committee development and goal setting as part of the 2011-2012 work plan.
The National Main Street program model is a great example of bringing community and business leaders together to foster private and public investment in historic downtowns.
