Scheduled over 18 months of active construction, the Concord Main Street Project is a major investment in revitalizing the city’s historic downtown into a more desirable place to work, shop, dine and live.
A year into the project, half of Main Street is complete and thriving as significant investment opportunities in the downtown continue to grow. In 2015 alone, 13 new stores opened in the Main Street area. By the end of November 2016, Concord’s new downtown will reflect a burgeoning economic, cultural and social community.
In addition to federal grant funding, the Concord Main Street Project also received $700,000 in CDFA Tax Credits to help complete the revitalization. The Tax Credits will help the City privately fundraise to support a portion of the initiative, underscoring the importance of public-private partnerships in driving local economic growth.
