2015 Main Street Economic Impact Statement

The Main Street program has demonstrated a substantial economic impact across the state for decades. Here are cumulative totals for all Main Street programs in the state, showing the number of new businesses in the Main Street District, the number of new jobs, the number of building renovations, the amount spent on building renovations, and total volunteer hours since the programs began. Newton Main Street is working hard to replicate and exceed the totals of other Main Street communities. Updated cumulative totals will be posted periodically so you too can track Main Street’s success.
