Special Centreville Town Council Meeting

The town council met on May 14 to explore what Centreville might gain by becoming a designated Maryland Main Street community. All stakeholders were invited to attend the session. Main Street Maryland is a downtown revitalization program administered by the state Department of Housing and Community Development. The state selects communities to participate in Main Street. While there is no outright funding provided, the designation would give the town access to more resources to promote the downtown area. Centreville’s town council would like the town to get the program going and eventually to have a separate non-profit organization oversee it with support from the town. To win designation, the town must demonstrate that it has support from a strong community of downtown stakeholders and have someone to work on the project on a full time basis.
