Sandusky Main Street Association is a local, not-for-profit organization that provides leadership, education and advocacy to save our downtown’s diverse historic places as well as promote economic development initiatives. Historic preservation and downtown revitalization enrich our quality of life, enhance our neighborhoods and revitalize communities as better places in which to live, work, celebrate and visit.
Historically operating as a local downtown waterfront development organization, we evolved in 2001 into the Sandusky Main Street Association by adopting the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s four-point approach. In 2002, we applied for official “Ohio Main Street Program” status; we received that designation in early 2003 and by January 2005 we received the distinguished title of “National Main Street Community” which we have continually earned each of the following years.
The SMSA is governed by a Board of Trustees which includes officers and committee chairs. All are volunteers (with the exception of the Program Manager who serves on the Board in an ex-officio status). Board of Trustees meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month at 8:00 a.m. General Stakeholders meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month in the Sandusky Library at 8am and are open to the public.
