There is a lot happening behind the scenes in downtown development. Lehighton Borough Council has approved utilizing the Main Street Four Point Approach® for downtown revitalization. The Main Street Steering Committee (MSSC) has been very busy following the recommendations of the three reports generated from the Smart Growth Grants. The mission of the Main Street Steering Committee is to build pride and preservation in the Lehighton Downtown Business District. Guided by the Main Street 4-Point Approach, our driven volunteers provide support and encouragement to the Business District, the surrounding community, local organizations and the residents and visitors of our hometown.
The MSSC meets at 6:00pm on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at the Carbon Chamber and Economic Development Offices located at 137 South Street, Lehighton. Currently, there are 19 members of the Steering Committee and we are actively recruiting volunteers. The group is working on short-term projects, educating themselves on the Four Point Approach and networking with other communities. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer with the MSSC, please contact Nicole Beckett at via email or 610-377-4002 ext. 214. Main Street Steering Members can be reached via email.
