Welcome to the Downtown blog. I’m Lorain K. Francis, Senior Program Director with the Maine Development Foundation’s Maine Downtown Center. Through this blog we will share insights and ideas to keep historic downtowns and Main Streets vital and vibrant. We serve as the Maine State Coordinator to the National Main Street Center. Our mission and methods are rooted in the Main Street Four Point Approach®, resulting in the nation’s most successful program for downtown revitalization, all within the context of historic preservation.
