Creating a vibrant, social and economically diverse City Center in Rome, New York


By utilizing the National Main Street Center’s 4—point approach to Economic Development we strive to create a strong, diverse, and vibrant city center in Rome. This volunteer effort is realized through collaboration and coordination with the business community, local government, residents, and other non-profit charitable, arts, and historic preservation organizations.
