Henderson Main Street - Vision Statement

The Henderson Main Street Project's vision is to have our historic downtown serve as a regional market and gathering place that enhances quality of life and meets the needs of local residents and merchants, and attracts tourists and visitors.

Through the Four Point Approach, Henderson Main Street strives to maintain and improve:

Organization: Builds partnerships among various groups in downtown by establishing a strong, committed volunteer base that advocates for our downtown district and high quality of life in Henderson.

Promotion:  Creates memorable experiences by focusing on unique shopping, dining, and services found within our downtown and promotes the essence of our authentic community assets and history.

Design:  Focuses on the physical elements of downtown such as storefronts, signs, landscaping, and public spaces; targets infrastructure and building improvements that lay the the groundwork for physical transformations that are both functional and attractive; and, advocates for the preservation and protection of community architectural treasures.

Economic restructuring/revitalization:  Identifies new market opportunities for the downtown area; redefines the district's niche in the marketplace; and, supports current businesses while nurturing new endeavors that respond to changing  customer needs.
