LMSA was founded in 2005 by local volunteers interested in utilizing Main Street America’s Four Point Approach to downtown development. In their application, they identified a desire to “create a formal organizational structure” to provide leadership and manpower necessary to implement plans and maintain a strong foundation for downtown revitalization.

GAMSA semifinalists were selected from a nationwide pool of accredited Main Street America applicants based on their successful and innovative uses of the Main Street Approach™. Criteria for winning include the following:

  • strength of the Main Street program in spurring community transformation
  • commitment to historic preservation
  • innovative programming
  • implementation of cross-sector partnerships
  • community outreach and stakeholder engagement
  • commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion

Winners for 2022’s GAMSA will be announced on May 16 at the Main Street Now Conference in Richmond, Virginia.
