Downtown Revitalization

NA Forward is focused on initiatives that enhance the quality of life in North Augusta.

Currently our primary area of focus is creating a vibrant, sustainable Downtown. To accomplish this task, NA Forward has joined the Main Street America program.

We chose Main Street America because we both believe:

  • Downtown is the heart and soul of our community.
  • Downtown revitalization has to be locally powered.
  • Downtown has unique character that connects our past to our future.

Local Plans

At the heart of any growing and thriving community is its downtown. North Augusta Forward is proud to serve as a voice for downtown revitalization in North Augusta, focusing on initiatives that include:

  • Developing an effective Downtown Merchants Association
  • Proactively marketing and promoting Downtown
  • Participating as a member of the Main Street South Carolina program

The Main Street South Carolina program is part of the broader Main Street America program, which is a movement focused on driving preservation-based economic development and community revitalization across the country.
