About Lawrenceburg Main Street, Inc.

Lawrenceburg Main Street, Inc. is a nonprofit organization focused on the growth, appeal and economic vitality of Downtown Lawrenceburg. As an organization, LMS has been working to help revitalize and continuously improve the Downtown Lawrenceburg Levee District since our establishment in the late 1990’s.

Four-Point Approach

As an accredited State & National Main Street Program, our goals and initiatives are structured around the Main Street Four-Point Approach®. This approach represents a unique preservation-based economic development tool that enables communities like Lawrenceburg to revitalize downtown and business districts by leveraging local assets.

The four points represent four specific and adaptable areas of concentration, including: Design, Promotion, Economic Vitality and Organization.

Design: Lawrenceburg Main Street strives to create an inviting, inclusive atmosphere while celebrating historic character and fostering accessible, people-centered public spaces. Initiatives include enhancement grants, parklets, Groom & Bloom, and other beautification efforts.

Promotions: Lawrenceburg Main Street strives to position the downtown district as the center of the community and the hub of economic activity, while creating a positive image that showcases the community’s unique characteristics. We work to improve consumer and investor confidence in the district, and encourage commercial activity and investment. Initiatives include event series, annual events, merchant-based and partnered events, ongoing marketing programs, local and online advertising,  shoppers’ incentives, web and social media presence, and other promotional efforts.

Economic Vitality: Lawrenceburg Main Street strives to build a diverse economic base by catalyzing smart, new investment into the Downtown district and a strong entrepreneurial ecosystem. Initiatives include new and existing business grants, a Small Business Boot Camp, and ongoing business assistance programs and efforts.

Organization: Lawrenceburg Main Street strives to build leadership and a strong organizational capacity  inclusive of various groups, businesses, individuals and partnerships throughout the community. We seek to encourage and ensure broad community engagement and involvement and to build consensus and cooperation among various stakeholders. Initiatives include serving on and leading various committees in order to execute Downtown improvement and promotional efforts, and developing methods for optimal operations.
