The Hopewell Downtown Partnership (HDP) partners with local government, existing community and business organizations, as well as our richly diverse community at large, to develop and implement a program for a healthy, vibrant, and prosperous central downtown district.
As a Main Street America™ Accredited program, the Hopewell Downtown Partnership (HDP) is a recognized leading program among the national network of more than 1,200 neighborhoods and communities who share both a commitment to creating high-quality places and to building stronger communities through preservation-based economic development. All Main Street America™ Accredited programs meet a set of National Accreditation Standards of Performance as outlined by the National Main Street Center.
Strengthen the downtown district’s existing economic base, seek ways to introduce new types of commerce suitable for a downtown venue, and convert underutilized space into productive uses.
Promote the enhanced physical appearance of the district by capitalizing on its assets, rehabilitating historic buildings, encouraging supportive new construction, and beautifying the streetscape.
Market the downtown district’s unique qualities to potential customers, investors, new businesses, local citizens, and visitors through effective strategies and special events.
Build cooperation and consensus between all stakeholders in an effort to meet our mission and objectives, to strengthen our Main Street program, and to improve the quality of life for the people who live, work, and visit in downtown Hopewell.
