City Of Mineola Main Street Program Recognized as 2018 Main Street America Affiliate

City of Mineola, Texas 2018 – Mineola Main Street has been designated as an affiliate Main Street AmericaTM program by the National Main Street Center. Each year, the National Main Street Center and its Coordinating Program partners announce the list of nationally recognized Main Street America affiliate programs in recognition of their commitment to achieving meaningful improvements in downtowns and commercial districts across the country using the Main Street ApproachTM.

“It is my privilege to recognize this year’s 299 Main Street America affiliate programs,” says Patrice Frey, President & CEO of the National Main Street Center. “Their commitment to helping advance strong local economies, and to being a part of a national movement of like- minded community change makers is truly powerful. Main Streets are the heart of our communities, and these Main Street America programs truly strengthen the economic, social, and cultural fabric of their entire communities.”

In 2017 alone, Main Street America programs generated $4.48 billion in local reinvestment, helped open 6,211 net new businesses, generated 30,294 net new jobs, catalyzed the rehabilitation of 8,737 historic buildings, and clocked 2.7 million volunteer hours.

The organization’s performance is annually evaluated by The Texas Main Street Program which works in partnership with the National Main Street Center to identify the local programs that are committed to comprehensive revitalization and achieving meaningful community outcomes.

Mineola Main Street Program started in 1989 and continues to be very strong within State of Texas and Wood County Community. Mineola Main Street will be celebrating in 2019, 30 years of continuing downtown development and preservation programs of their unique history to enhance the Quality of Life within the City of Mineola.

Main Street America has been helping revitalize older and historic commercial districts for more than 35 years. Today, it is a network of more than 1,000 neighborhoods and communities, rural and urban, who share both a commitment to place and to building stronger communities through preservation-based economic development. Since 1980, communities participating in the program have leveraged more than $71.35 billion in new public and private investment, generated 583,869 net new jobs and 131,974 net new businesses, and rehabilitated more than 267,800 buildings. Main Street America is a program of the nonprofit National Main Street Center, a subsidiary of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

Mineola Receives National Recognition 2016

2015NationalMainStreetNACOGDOCHES, Texas —  The Texas Historical Commission (THC) commended Mineola for successful annual progress as a designated Main Street community, one of 60 to be recognized this year.
 The Main Street program in Texas began in 1981 as one of the first state coordinating programs in the country. Local Main Street programs focus on responsibly utilizing a community’s historic assets for economic benefit and to increase quality of life. During fiscal year 2014, more than $120 million was reinvested into Texas’ 89 Main Street districts. Additionally, 352 small businesses and 1,091 jobs were created.
Main Street programs in Texas are staffed, but rely on community volunteers to carry out the program. In 2014, Main Street volunteers reported almost 120,000 hours of work donated in support of the program.
 “Recognizing these individual local programs through an annual accreditation process proves that Main Street’s ambitious annual goals are being achieved,” said Mark Wolfe, THC Executive Director. “Just as importantly, it shows that in Texas and all across the country, the Main Street effort provides substantial return on investment to local communities.”
The THC’s Texas Main Street Program (TMSP) made the announcement February 11 at the winter gathering of Texas Main Street managers in Nacogdoches, a successful 17-year Texas Main Street city.
“We are proud to have the opportunity to recognize all the staff and volunteers in our Texas Main Street Program for their efforts,” said Debra Drescher, TMSP state coordinator. “Without our network of committed and dedicated volunteers, this program would not be a success.”
The TMSP will recommend its Texas selections for 2015 National Accreditation to the National Main Street Center, a subsidiary of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.  Upon final approval of the Center, the national announcement for all designated Main Street programs across the country will be made at the National Main Street conference in Atlanta, Ga. March 30-April 2.
Accredited programs show above average performance in 10 categories on an annual report. Selection criteria focus on planning, partnerships, staffing, volunteer effort, preservation ethic, training, and program assessment through reporting. The state office also works with programs throughout the year by providing various services based upon local needs.
For additional information about the national Main Street effort, visit the National Trust Main Street website at http://www.preservationnation.org/main-street/.  For more information on the Texas Historical Commission’s Main Street program visit www.thc.state.tx.us.
The THC’s Texas Main Street Program is a revitalization program for historic downtown and neighborhood commercial districts. It is based on a Four-Point Approach™ -organization, design, promotion, and economic restructuring-all within the context of historic preservation. Implemented nationwide and in Texas in 1981, the Texas program has assisted more than 170 communities throughout the state. For more information, contact Debra Drescher at 512/463-5758.
