Biloxi a ‘refresh’ city

Biloxi is one of seven U.S. cities that has been selected as a demonstration site by The National Main Street Center, Inc., to implement its refreshed approach to comprehensive community revitalization and preservation-based economic development.

Biloxi; Philadelphia, Penn.; Milledgeville, Ga.; Detroit, Mich.; Gary, Ind.; Lexington, Ky.; and Miami, Fla. were named by the NMSC to be part of an ambitious program designed to reinvigorate the Main Street model. The program is supported by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

Each community will benefit from recent strategic improvements to the National Main Street
Center’s revitalization methodology. Local leaders will receive 12 to 18 months of free organizational capacity building and hands-on technical assistance from national experts on how best to involve the community in revitalization efforts, plan and execute long-term strategic action, and effectively measure the impact of those efforts.
