A Great Neighborhood
Commercial District Comes Alive

Many years of planning and steady reinvestment in the Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard corridor by private, public, and community stakeholders has resulted in a neighborhood that is more lively every day.  Central City's Main Street offers opportunities for working, shopping, business and social services, visual & performing arts and other cultural activities, dining, seeing historic preservation in action, worshipping, hearing live music, gardening, sports activities and residential living.  Welcome to the Boulevard, winner of a Great American Main Street award in 2017!
