Our community's vision is to build a strong economic foundation for the city by creating a historic entertainment district with unique shopping, dining, and social experiences attracting tourists and locals with its rich history, cultural heritage, and engaging talent.
The Pittsburg's Main Street Advisory Board's mission is to value and honor our past while we focus on creating a vibrant future by implementing the Texas Main Street Organization's Four Point Approach, which is a comprehensive strategy tailored to meet local needs and opportunities through Economic Vitality, Organization, Promotion, and Design. The Main Street Advisory Board builds strong relationships and encourages public-private partnerships to enhance economic vitality while preserving the historic character and charm of Pittsburg's traditional commercial district through a community-based organization.
