About Lisbon Main Street Inc.
Our slogan "Small Town, Big Heart" goes a long way toward explaining why so many people in the Lisbon, Landaff and Lyman area are friends of Lisbon Main Street, Inc, and are working hard to improve and promote downtown Lisbon, New Hampshire.
Lisbon Main Street, Inc. was organized in 2001by a group of concerned residents who were convinced that downtown Lisbon could recreate some of the luster it once had. So, in 2001 they formed their non-profit revitalization group, and in 2005 officially joined the family of New Hampshire Main Street communities. As a member of the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the National Main Street Center, LMSI adheres to the comprehensive revitalization principles that are embodied in the Four Point Approach©.
The Four Point Approach
The four-point approach to downtown revitalization designed by the National Main Street program to address specific areas of concern:
Organization: works to maintain and grow support community-wide, manage fundraising efforts, recruit and retain volunteers, and stay in touch with the membership and community.
Promotion: develops and coordinates special business and community events to attract customers and activity to Main Street and promote downtown as a unified business and community center.
Design: encourages appropriate and unified design within the downtown district by helping property and business owners restore and enhance positive elements of their property, street amenities,
commercial window displays, signage, etc.
Economic Restructuring: works to plan and diversify the present ‘mix’ within downtown by working to attract a healthy balance of retail, professional, recreation, and residential uses.
