Established in 2004, Downtown San Angelo, Inc. was formed by a group of 35 individuals who were dedicated to downtown revitalization. In November 2005, the organization was granted membership in the Main Street Program. This program is a major effort by the National Trust for Historic Preservation to provide assistance to cities whose older central business districts are seeking to retain some vestige of their visual character and whose economic position is slipping. The premise of this program is that economic revitalization can take place within the context of historic preservation.
DSA enjoys broad-based public support for the revitalization process, with strong support from both public and private sectors. Wide-ranging community collective skills and resources are utilized to maximum advantage.
To utilize the Main Street 4-Point Approach; design, economic restructuring, organization and promotion, to develop the historic central business district of downtown San Angelo into a unified element of cultural and economic vitality. To enhance revitalization and preservation programs to safeguard downtown San Angelo’s rich history.
Downtown San Angelo is envisioned as an inviting environment sustained by historically preserved and restored buildings, thriving businesses that appeal to locals and tourists, a uniquely distinct area anchored by traditional institutions and living spaces that exemplify the neighborhood concept.
