Levelland commended for Main Street program

Provided by City of Levelland

Levelland, TX has been commended for successful annual progress as a designated Main Street community. Texas Historical Commission's (THC) Texas Main Street Program (TMSP) made the announcement Wednesday, January 30 at the winter gathering of Texas Main Street managers.

Sixty-seven designated Main Street programs in Texas were recognized. These cities will be further recognized as Nationally Accredited by the National Main Street Center, a subsidiary of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, at the National Main Street conference in New Orleans in April. This is Levelland's fifteenth consecutive year to receive State and National level recognition.

"It really is a notable accomplishment to be recognized in this way, especially for those programs that do it year after year," said Debra Farst, TMSP state coordinator. "Incremental progress that leads to comprehensive success is at the core of the preservation-based Main Street model and that is exactly what these programs are showing. This process respects the unique nature of each Main Street community. Each program is recognized for their own local effort. They are truly real places telling real stories."

Accredited programs show above average performance in ten categories on an annual report. Selection criteria focus on planning, partnerships, staffing, volunteer effort, preservation ethic, training and program assessment through reporting. The state office also works with programs throughout the year by providing various services based upon local needs.

NATIONAL RECOGNITION, 2-2
