Main Street Greenwood (MSG) is very deserving of this award because of the award-winning work they are doing to preserve, promote and create a desirable atmosphere to recruit and sustain economic development opportunities in Downtown Greenwood. Downtown Greenwood is alive and thriving and has become a shining example of small town development in the Southeast. All it takes is a ride through downtown to see the fruits of Main Street Greenwood's labors around every corner. Main Street Greenwood is the first Main Street program in the United States to introduce a Revolving Real Estate Program as part of its downtown redevelopment initiatives. Current property owners and members of Main Street Greenwood, Inc., unable to sell or rehabilitate property within the Main Street Greenwood District will be eligible to submit an application to enter the Revolving Real Estate Program. Upon approval by the Main Street Greenwood Inc. Board of Directors, property will be donated to Main Street Greenwood, Inc. Upon receipt of property, Main Street Greenwood, Inc. will advertise the property for purchase bids. Main Street Greenwood reserves the right to reject any bid. Purchasers of the property must agree to ALL rehabilitation terms, covenants and agreements set by Main Street Greenwood, Inc. Funds received from the sale of the property will reimburse the organization for any advertising or marketing costs and then be placed in a Revolving Real Estate Fund to be used to continue this program. I am excited to say that the first building in this program is currently being redeveloped. While the work is outstanding, as most small town mains street programs, MSG is always struggling for funding. This award would be a shot in the arm for the organization to continue doing exemplary work to benefit generations to come.
