Main street

The Main Street Approach is a nationwide, time-tested framework for community-driven, comprehensive revitalization.

Main Street empowers communities to set their own destinies. While revitalization is challenging work, the Main Street program offers a road-map for locally-owned, locally-driven prosperity.

The Main Street Approach is based on a 4-Point Approach, supported by the work of four volunteer committees: Design, Economic Vitality, Organization, and Promotion. These four focus areas form our collaborative approach to economic sustainability and revitalization of our historic downtown.


The Main Street tax credit incentive program provides a Business & Occupation (B&O) credit for private contributions given to eligible downtown organizations. Once your business’ donation request is approved by the Department of Revenue, you are eligible for a tax credit worth 75% of the contribution to our revitalization organization.  

The Downtown Bremerton Association is currently an Affiliate Member and hopes to successfully apply in 2024 to become a Washington Main Street Community Member.


What we currently need are volunteers to serve on the following committees: Economic Vitality, Organization, Promotions, and Design. If you want to help us further the success downtown ask any board member for information. Fill out our volunteer form here!
