The president of National Main Street, an organization that funds and helps manage the revitalization and preservation of downtown districts across the country, recently paid a visit to Los Alamos. Los Alamos is a member of the organization.
Patrice Frey, who has been the organization’s president for six months, said she was on a national assessment tour of “Main Street” communities.
“I’m trying to reach out to as many Main Streets as I can and learn as much as I can about what’s going on in the field,” she said during a recent stop at the Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce.
She hopes to take what she’s learned from the tour and apply it on a national level.
She was also present at a press conference in Santa Fe that detailed the impact of National Main Street on New Mexican communities over the past 28 years.
While in Los Alamos, Frey toured Fuller Lodge, Ashley Pond, C.B. Fox Department store and the Bradbury Science Museum.
Other towns on her stop included Corrales and Santa Fe. In New Mexico, there are about 28 communities that belong and consult with National Main Street, which has a state office as well as branches in the communities it represents.
Though the tour was a brief one, Frey said it really highlighted Los Alamos’ economic uniqueness.
