BELMONT – Main Street has been recognized as a “Great Main Street” in the 2015 Great Places in North Carolina awards program, sponsored by the North Carolina Chapter of the American Planning Association.
Belmont’s nomination highlighted the role Main Street plays in the community as a center of vibrant activity that includes a thriving business community, the adaptive re-use of a former general store and a department store, family-friendly entertainment, and active living – all while retaining a “small town” feel.
It was the combination of vitality and proactive dedication of the town and community to the success of Main Street that led the panel to select it as a 2015 Great Main Street in the professionals’ category.
The professionals’ category includes a detailed nomination process that requires in-depth descriptions of the work and partnerships that went into creating the main street.
Every great main street has a story and this contest allows those involved to tell that story.
“Through this program, we celebrate great places in our state and the local partnerships that have worked collaboratively to make these places great,”
said John Morck, president of APA-NC.
