Rome Main Streets Alliance

Economic Restructing




In 2002, the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s National Main Street Center was commissioned by the City of Rome to conduct a comprehensive asessment of Downtown Rome. As a result, Rome defined its downtown corridors as East Dominick Street, James Streets and West Dominick Street. Today, Rome is proud to be one of only a few National Main Street Center recognized programs in all of New York State. The Main Street Alliance, with both volunteer and municipal support, has established itself as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.

To ensure lasting community change, the program must continue to be driven and supported by the community as a whole. Successful downtown revitalization does not occur instantly, but with an entire community’s commitment to the success of the program, positive and sustainable change is evitable for future generations.
