OUR TOWN BELFAST exists to grow and sustain our historic downtown while celebrating our unique cultural heritage. We believe in supporting local businesses, honoring our heritage through historic preservation, and bringing together the community in order to make downtown Belfast a better place to live, work, and play. Our Town Belfast envisions a vibrant future in which our waterfront, commercial district, treasured historic buildings, and outdoor public spaces are alive with activity.
What do we mean when we say that Our Town Belfast is “a Main Street Community?”
The Maine Downtown Center’s core program is Main Street, which is a proven Four-Point Approach® to downtown revitalization developed by the National Trust for Historic Preservation in 1980 and is currently used in 44 states in over 2,200 communities.
Currently, ten communities have achieved and maintained Main Street Maine designation: Bath, Belfast, Biddeford, Brunswick, Gardiner, Rockland, Saco, Sanford, Skowhegan, and Westbrook.
