Nestled between the Great Smoky Mountains and the Blue Ridge Parkway, Sylva, NC is the hub of cultural and recreational resources for our community and the center of independent businesses and services, unique restaurants and quality events for families and visitors.

 

The Main Street Sylva Association is a non-profit entity formed with the mission to spur economic development in the town of Sylva using the National Main Street Center’s Four Point Approach: Design, Organization, Promotion and Economic Restructuring.  The initiatives will not only benefit downtown Sylva, but all of the Sylva Main Street Corridor and arteries from the Dillsboro city limits through the end of the Sylva City limits on Highway 107.

The organization has taken on some of Sylva’s longstanding events such as Greening Up the Mountains, Treat Street and the Christmas Parade.  Board members represent key areas of Sylva related to the Main Street program, such as independent businesses, the arts, garden & streetscape, historic preservation, county and town planning and residential.

 

Mission statement:
The mission of the Main Street Sylva Association is to promote downtown revitalization through community and economic development within the context of historic preservation.

As a Main Street America™ Accredited program, the Main Street Sylva Association is a recognized leading program among the national network of more than 1,200 neighborhoods and communities that share both a commitment to creating high-quality places and to building stronger communities through preservation-based economic development. All Main Street America™ Accredited programs meet a set of National Accreditation Standards of Performance as outlined by Main Street America.
