Zuni Pueblo MainStreet Receives National Accreditation
Santa Fe, N.M. – The New Mexico Economic Development Department (NMEDD) announced that the National Main Street Center and its partners have accredited a number of NM MainStreet (NMMS) programs, including Zuni Pueblo MainStreet, in recognition of their exemplary commitment to historic preservation and community revitalization through the Main Street Four-Point Approach®. This accreditation recognizes programs for meeting the commercial district revitalization performance standards set by the National Main Street Center, and will allow them to continue their work in revitalizing downtown economies.
In July of 2012, Zuni Pueblo became the first Native American community to be designated as a MainStreet community in the United States. The Zuni Pueblo MainStreet organization was created to encourage revitalization of our local economy while continuing to preserve Zuni’s unique traditional and historic elements.
By utilizing the framework of the MainStreet Four-Point Approach®, Zuni Pueblo MainStreet seeks to promote an entirely community-driven process that brings stakeholders together, inviting them to be proactive participants in the revitalization process. Communities are encouraged to work together to identify key strategies — known as Economic Transformation Strategies — that provide a clear sense of priorities and direction for revitalization efforts.
