What is Main Street?
Cambridge was designated a Maryland Main Street community on July 1, 2003. Cambridge Main Street is a comprehensive downtown revitalization process created by the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development to strengthen the economic potential of select cities around the state.
Goal of Main Street
The aim of Main Street
is to involve groups and individuals that share the common goal of revitalizing the main downtown commercial districts. In order to be successful, downtown revitalization requires the cooperation and commitment of a broad based coalition of public and private groups: businesses, civic groups, local government, financial institutions, consumers, and others. Consumers stand to benefit the most from a revitalized downtown offering goods and services that meet their needs.
