What is Brush Chamber "Main Street"?
The Brush Area Chamber of Commerce "Improvement and Revitalization Team" is a voluntary organization comprised of businesses and professionals who have joined together for the purpose of preserving and improving Brush's downtown commercial district and improving the business climate of all Brush area members and investors. The Chamber is accomplishing this goal with its involvement with "Main Street".
"Main Street" is a program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The national "Main Street" organization provides technical support and training. However, "Main Street" in Brush is locally funded and operated. It is the Chamber's belief that local people should solve local issues.
Brush Area Chamber is following the national "Main Street's" Four-Point Approach model, which is successful in many communities in the United States. The Four Points (Design, Promotion, Economic Restructuring and Organization) provide a proven comprehensive method of downtown revitalization and business improvement. Funding is received from both the public and private sectors.
