Main Street Community



About Main Street

 

The underlying premise of the Main Street approach is to encourage economic development within the context of historic preservation in ways appropriate to today's marketplace. The Main Street Approach advocates a return to community self-reliance, local empowerment, and the rebuilding of traditional commercial districts based on their unique assets: distinctive architecture, a pedestrian-friendly environment, personal service, local ownership, and a sense of community.

Port Angeles Downtown has been a Main Street Community for 20 years and continues to maintain its certified status.   The association is comprised of seven committees:

Dyer Fountain

 

 

Main Street Tax Incentive Program

This is a great way to support your local Main Street community.  You can keep part of your tax dollars that normally go to Olympia and never return, working here in Port Angeles .  The tax credit program allows you to write your check for your B&O taxes to Port Angeles Downtown and your money stays here.  You receive a tax credit from Washington state that applies to your state B&O tax liability.

 

 

 

Projects recently completed or in the works as a result of funds received from participating businesses listed below include:

  • New lighting and electrical work at the Conrad Dyer fountain
  • A new marketing program and image for our downtown businesses
  • Sharp Shopper program


Would you like to support the efforts of the Downtown Association and keep your B&O tax here in the community?  This opportunity to keep tax dollars local is available to any business in the community.

Please contact us at the PADA office, 208 N. Laurel,   457-9614 or director@portangelesdowntown.com for information.

Special thanks to our participating business partners for joining us and keeping part of their B&O tax dollars in our community.  We will put them to work here at home.
