Sedona Main Street Program earns national recognition

The efforts of the volunteer and stakeholder driven Sedona Main Street Program have earned it national recognition for meeting standards of performance set by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and its National Main Street Center. Sedona Main Street Program is one of only 5 of the 15 Main Street communities in Arizona named as a 2007 Accredited National Main Street Program. There are almost 1200 communities with local Main Street Programs throughout the country and Sedona joins the elite group of 650 programs meeting the stringent criteria required for national accreditation.

"This is the fifth year Sedona Main Street Program has received this prestigious recognition" according to Holly Epright, Executive Director. "I am honored to accept this national accreditation on behalf of our Board of Directors. They and many additional volunteers give countless hours and are dedicated to the Program's grassroots efforts. We are supported by our members, sponsors and benefactors and this recognition reflects our stakeholders' commitment to keeping Sedona's core and historic commercial district vital and vibrant."
