Welcome to Main Street 101

Main Street 101 has been re-imagined as a completely online, interactive experience designed to walk you through the Main Street 4- Point Approach from start to finish.  Utilizing Prezi, a presentation software that uses motion, zoom, and spatial relationships to relay information, this interactive guide was developed by the Georgia Main Street Program Staff and is a complimentary resource available to all Georgia cities.  Here the fundamentals of the Main Street program have been broken down here in to a four part series providing you the viewer with videos, links and visual resources, to help you better retain the information presented.  We understand that Prezi is not a platform that is familiar to everyone, for a quick demonstration on how to use Prezi please click here.
