I have always believed that downtown Victoria is really underappreciated.  Not only do we have one of the most beautiful Texas courthouses, but a lot of building facades have also kept their original look. Which gives downtown Victoria a truly nostalgic feel.   I would like to send a shout-out to The Victoria Main Street Program for doing a fabulous job with downtown revitalization and promotions and others have taken notice as well.

The Victoria Main Street Program has been selected as one of the nation's 337 affiliate programs. The is huge considering that last year was marked by unforeseen challenges, creative solutions, and new initiatives in downtown Victoria. I have seen definitely seen a change in downtown Victoria's vibe, for the positive.

However, this is not the first time that the Victoria Main Street Program has received this designation.  TVMSP has received this designation every year since 2012! You can read more about this designation by clicking here.

One thing about the Victoria Main Street Program is that they listen to their community.  They are preparing to launch another community input survey for its downtown master plan.
