The 2015 Great American Main Street Award Semifinalists

Over the past five days, we had the pleasure of revealing the ten 2015 Great American Main Street Award semifinalists on Facebook and Twitter.It was great to see how residents, business owners, city staff and Main Street organizations rallied behind each semifinalist as they were announced, passing along encouraging words and support. This year’s semifinalists are impressive, together having generated over $54 million in public/private reinvestment in 2013, while creating 491 new jobs and opening 126 new businesses. “As Main Street celebrates its 35th Anniversary in 2015, it is once again great to see the results the Main Street movement has generated,” said Carolyn Dellutri, NMSC Senior Director of Programs and Services. “This year’s semifinalists showcase the diversity of Main Streets across the country with both younger and more established; large and small programs represented. We look forward to announcing this year’s winners in March at the National Main Streets Conference in Atlanta.”
