Waxhaw, North Carolina Receives 2019 National Main Street Accreditation

No wonder it seems as if everyone wants to move to Waxhaw these days... the Town of Waxhaw is one of 46 designated North Carolina communities to receive 2019 Main Street America™ accreditation for its historic downtown. Congratulations to Waxhaw on a job well done! 

 

Four additional Charlotte region communities were also accredited in 2019: Belmont, Concord, Monroe, Morehead City. During the 2018 fiscal year, North Carolina Main Street programs generated $222 million in local public and private reinvestment, helped open 247 net new businesses, generated 1,288 net new jobs, and saw the rehabilitation of 255 buildings and 372 façade improvements.

 

During the 2018 fiscal year, historic, downtown Waxhaw benefitted  from a net gain of six new businesses and almost $10 million in private investment. Volunteers dedicated 600+ hours to Waxhaw Main Street events, beautification and economic development planning activities. Waxhaw's Main Street Program strives to make historic, downtown Waxhaw a hub for retail shops, award-winning dining options, local artisans and cultural events (Waxhaw just had its hugely popular annual Kaleidoscope Music Arts & Food Festival a few days ago).

What Is The National Main Street American Program All About?

 

Main Street America By The NumbersIf you've never heard of the National Main Street America Program you are probably not alone... Main Street America has been instrumental in helping to revitalize older and historic commercial districts for over 35 years. Main Street America’s network now consists of over 2,000 rural and urban neighborhoods and communities who share a commitment to building stronger communities through preservation-based economic development. Main Street America recognizes communities that celebrate their community's character, work to preserve local history, and generate significant economic returns. The Town of Waxhaw totally fits the bill for all three. Main Street America is a program of the non-profit National Main Street Center, a subsidiary of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

Hello Nina - a good job with congratulating Waxhaw, NC for its 2019 National Main Street Accreditation.  Promoting our cities especially when the growth occurs because of businesses believing in that growth with their own investment dollars is  important  news to tout.

Michael Jacobs hi MIchael... your point is well taken. Our Town of Matthews had much more historical character when we first moved to Charlotte and some of that has gone by the wayside because the businesses that were there have moved on.

George Souto good morning, George... these accolades are very much deserved in our area. While lots of people continue to move here, I think we are still a bit of a well-kept secret as a terrific destination to live and retire.

Endre Barath, Jr. good morning, Endre. Waxhaw is named after the Waxhaw Indians of the Sioux tribe who first populated this area. That's what everyone says about pronouncing Waxhaw, but it's quite easy. Here's a link on how to say it. And your comment has given me a new idea.... I might just include that youtube video on how to pronounce Waxhaw in future posts. Thanks, pal!
