Four more Michigan Main Street communities have received National Accreditation through the Michigan Main Street Center @ MSHDA (Michigan State Housing Development Authority). The four downtown communities to be recognized by the National Trust for Historic Preservation's Main Street Center as accredited Main Street communities are; Scottville, Old Town Lansing, Howell and Iron Mountain. These four communities join an additional five communities who were previously accredited and are now at the Master Level of the Michigan Main Street program. Congratulations to these communities and all those across our state working every day to create attractive, vibrant places for people to live, work and play. Remember that better communities mean a better Michigan. Arnold Weinfeld is Director of Strategic Initiatives and Federal Affairs for the Michigan Municipal League.
