DBI is committed to strengthening the existing businesses in Historic Downtown Blackstone; we are also focused on recruiting and attracting businesses that complement the existing businesses. We work closely with local government and business and property owners to establish a clear vision for the town and its residents.
The Main Street program directly benefits a locality in a variety of ways. As businesses are successful and grow, downtown thrives and the community-at-large in turn benefits with more goods and services available to them, job creation, as well as with enhanced opportunities for community programming that a healthy downtown area naturally promotes, such as concerts and festivals and a better quality of life. Click here for a look at the work that was done to get us where we are today.
You might be wondering what our efforts have yielded beyond a facelift of buildings so let's cut to the chase and have a look at some bottom line numbers: Here is what we have accomplished.
