The Pittsburg’s Main Street Advisory Board mission is to value and honor our past while we focus on creating a vibrant future by implementing the Texas Main Street Organization’s Four Point Approach which is a comprehensive strategy tailored to meet local needs and opportunities through Design, Economic Vitality, Promotion and Organization. The Main Street Advisory Board builds strong relationships and encourages public-private partnerships to enhance economic vitality while preserving the historic character and charm of Pittsburg’s traditional commercial district through a community based organization. To assist in accomplishing this mission the Pittsburg EDC has funded reimbursement incentive grants.
