    Norway Downtown is a non-profit organization working with local people to build on the assets of a unique and treasured Main Street. It's mission is to lead the effort to revitalize Norway's historic Main Street in collaboration with residents, businesses and organizations.In 2002, Norway was designated an official Main Street Maine community by the Maine Downtown Center and the National Main Street Center. Currently Norway Downtown is a Maine Network Community. This program, administered by the Maine Development Foundation, was developed by the National Trust for Historic Preservation in response to increasing threats to the health and survival of downtowns. Over the last 20 years, the program has grown to include over 1,700 communities nationwide. This affiliation with the program provides significant resources and training for Norway Downtown. In 2009 Norway Downtown became part of the Maine Downtown Network, supported totally by volunteer commitment working with consultants and professional services. As a partnership-based group, our strength is rooted in the relationships we form with state and local government and public and private investors. We initiate and support projects to improve Main Street, addressing changes with a comprehensive approach aimed at: Introducing people to the Main Street Maine and Maine Downtown Network program getting Main Street into the best physical shape possible celebrating and protecting historic features introducing new ideas about downtown development, bringing people to Main Street creating an atmosphere conducive to Norway Business.
