UTAH MAIN STREET PROGRAM


Learn More

A MOVEMENT

Main Street America has helped revitalize older and historic commercial districts for 35+ years. It is the leading voice for preservation-based economic development and community revitalization across the country. The program works with small towns, mid-sized communities, and urban commercial districts to breathe new life into neighborhoods.

A MARK OF DISTINCTION

Participating programs, organizations, and communities are part of a national movement with a proven track record for celebrating community character, preserving local history, and generating impressive economic returns. Since 1980, over 2,000 communities have participated, bringing renewed energy and activity to America’s downtowns and commercial districts, securing $61 billion in new investment, creating more than 525,000 net new jobs, and rehabilitating 251,000 buildings.

A TIME-TESTED STRATEGY

The Main Street Approach includes broad-based community engagement, a holistic understanding of the factors that impact the quality of life, and a strategic focus on the core principles of downtown and neighborhood revitalization, including economic vitality, quality design, effective promotion, and sustainable organization.

Trestle Work and Engine No. 2 by the Union Pacific, on the Eastern Approach to the Promontory Summit

Photograph, 1869
Andrew Joseph Russell, American, 1829–1902


Much of the engineering know-how used on the Transcontinental Railroad was developed during the American Civil War, including railroad construction and bridge building. This improved engineering was best illustrated in Utah during the last days leading up to the wedding of the rails.


In the final months before May 10, 1869, both the Central Pacific and Union Pacific were grading and laying track, often within throwing distance of each other, both vying for the same federal certification that brought large sums of borrowed federal funds and land grants. The Union Pacific built this trestle in 36 days, finishing it five days before the May 10th ceremony. What is not shown in this photograph is the Central Pacific's competing "Big [earthen] Fill" roadbed which was built 70 feet high and 500 feet across, 200 yards away, over the same ravine

Fall 2020 | THE CREATIVE PIVOT ISSUE

Artists create, pandemic or protests or not. And even before Utah’s theaters and museums and concert halls reopened, the creative sector was already reinventing itself. While still in the middle of everything, creators revealed how they’re refocusing while finding new ways to reach audiences. Of course, the work of pivoting isn’t finished — perhaps barely begun — but these stories underscore the creativity of the state’s creative landscape.

TESTIMONIALS


“Utah has deep roots in the entertainment industry, with thousands of productions filmed across the state of Utah since the 1930s. Whatever the story, it can be told in Utah’s desert lands, mountain grandeur, small towns, and urban cities. With over 84,000 square miles of diverse and cinematic landscapes, Utah’s historical buildings and landmarks are unique assets that attract filmmakers to our state for film production. Productions filmed in the state have both a creative and an economic impact by supporting small businesses creating new jobs and encouraging new visitors to see where their favorite films were shot.”


Virginia Pearce
Director
Utah Film Commission

“Brigham City has long been recognized for its wonderful Main Street. We are excited and honored that Brigham City has been chosen as a pilot community for the Utah Main Street Program. The Main Street Program has demonstrated its effectiveness throughout the United States. As a community-driven and holistic approach to downtown revitalization, and not simply a silver bullet approach, I believe that the Main Street Program will be of tremendous benefit for our beautiful town.”


Tyler M. Vincent
Mayor
Brigham City
