A Weakley County city is among six communities selected to participate in the Tennessee Downtowns program.
Greenfield was selected for the program along with Clifton, Portland, Tracy City, Waynesboro and White Bluff, according to Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty.
Tennessee Downtowns is a competitive community improvement program for cities and counties seeking to revitalize traditional commercial districts, according to a state news release.
“Congratulations to each of the six communities selected to participate in this round of Tennessee Downtowns,” Hagerty said. “A thriving commercial district can be an excellent driver of economic growth in our rural communities, and we are pleased to recognize those that are committed to reviving the downtown business area in their locale.”
Tennessee Downtowns is a tiered program affiliated with the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development’s Tennessee Main Street Program.
The six selected communities are each home to downtown commercial districts established at least 50 years ago and have demonstrated their readiness to organize efforts for downtown revitalization based on the successful “Main Street Four-Point Approach to Downtown Revitalization™.”
