Downtown Redding is a Main Street America Designated District. Over the past several years, Viva Downtown Redding has operated a program that builds on Downtown assets to encourage investment and development. The Main Street approach focuses on four areas: ECONOMIC VITALITY – focuses on capital, incentives and other economic and financial tools to assist new and existing businesses, catalyze property development and create a supportive environment for entrepreneurs and innovators that drive local economies.
DESIGN – supports a community’s transformation by enhancing the physical and visual assets that set the commercial district apart. PROMOTION – positions the downtown or commercial district as the center of the community and hub of economic activity while creating a positive image that highlights a community’s unique characteristics. ORGANIZATION – involves creating a strong foundation for a sustainable revitalization effort, including cultivating partnerships, community involvement and resources for the district.
