ABOUT UPTOWN PARTNERSHIP MARTINSVILLE

We are an inclusive and diverse group of people who are committed to bringing residents and businesses to Uptown, using the nationally successful Main Street Approach. Our success is predicated on your participation.

 

Please complete our quick survey and follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

The Mission of Uptown Partnership is to create a vibrant, attractive, adaptive,

and charming Uptown District that is welcoming to visitors, residents, and investors, by:

Main Street Fundamentals

Increasing the stock of high-quality housing options

Championing the development of diverse businesses, entertainment, and dining options

Supporting the rehabilitation of existing buildings and appropriate infill

Building a vibrant community identity through frequent communications, support of Uptown marketing, events, and promotions.

  • The Main Street Approach is centered around Transformation Strategies. A Transformation Strategy articulates a focused, deliberate path to revitalizing or strengthening a downtown or commercial district’s economy.

  • A program’s work on Transformation Strategies should be organized around the Four Points: Economic Vitality, Design, Promotion, and Organization.

  • A revitalization program’s work – and its Transformation Strategies – need to be informed by a solid understanding of local and regional market data, and sustained and inclusive community engagement.

 

While we have identified “Uptown Life” and “Handmade, Craftmade, and Artisan” as our initial Transformation Strategies, we are still building our workplan to make a thriving UPtown a reality.

We welcome your ideas and would love to have you join our team and lead a project.
