BRUNSWICK — Brunswick Downtown Association was selected as one of 10 semi-finalists for the 2018 Great American Main Street Award by Main Street America.

Main Street America is a program of the National Main Street Center, which revitalizes older and historic commercial districts to build vibrant neighborhoods and thriving economies. The approach is comprehensive, inclusive, place-based and people-focused.

Each year, the National Main Street Center recognizes exceptional Main Street communities whose successes serve as a model for comprehensive, preservation-based commercial district revitalization with the Great American Main Street Award. Since 1995, over 90 Main Street programs have been honored.

Winners represent the diversity of communities in the Main Street America network — small towns, mid-sized communities, and urban commercial districts from every region in the country. Winners will be recognized at the “Main Street Now” Conference in Missouri in March 2018.
