David, Dayle and Meredith had a great time at the conference this year. It was hosted by the Town of Clayton and we enjoyed meeting new people and visiting local businesses. We learned about promoting economic development through preserving historic resources, how to support local farmers and restaurants in small towns, strategies for placemaking, and methods for encouraging smart growth.
We also celebrated two of our projects:
The Goldsboro Drug Company Building won Best Historic Rehabilitation project http://www.ncmainstreetcenter.com/2018/01/2017-best-historic-rehabilitation-project-goldsboro-nc/
The John Street Properties won Best Endangered Properties Rescue Effort http://www.ncmainstreetcenter.com/2018/01/2017-best-endangered-properties-rescue-effort-goldsboro-nc/
(from the NC Department of Commerce: The Annual NC Main Street Conference offers an excellent opportunity for downtown managers, board members, merchants, property owners and volunteers; planning, architecture, landscape architecture and historic preservation professionals; public officials and anyone else interested in downtown revitalization to learn about the latest trends, techniques and resources from state and national speakers who are experts in the field.)
