ELIZABETHTOWN, NC (WECT) - Elizabethtown has been chosen to participate in the Small Town Main Street Program.
The program is part of the North Carolina Department of Commerce. According to the department's website, "The STMS program is designed to provide downtown revitalization assistance to small towns (populations less than 7,500), which lack the financial resources to employ a downtown manager, a requirement of the N.C. Main Street program."
There is an application process and once a town is chosen the program lasts for two years. The STMP provides staff and services to help towns in the revitalization process. It includes help with organization, design, promotion, and economic restructuring.
