Do you enjoy biking to Downtown? Love our planters? The Governor of Virginia has awarded Fxbg Main Street with a $25,000 grant that has a match requirement.  This beautification grant will bring 20+ bike racks, a bike shelter and corral, more benches, planters and trashcans for Downtown. Please help us meet the match.

The Virginia Main Street Program is a preservation-based economic and community development program that follows the Main Street Four-Point Approach™ developed by the National Trust Main Street Center. Virginia Main Street offers a range of services and assistance to communities interested in revitalizing their historic commercial districts. While the program was designed to address the need for revitalization and on-going management of smaller to mid-sized downtowns, aspects of the Main Street Approach™ may be applied successfully in other commercial settings.
