The mission of the EMSI is to promote, encourage, and enhance the economic strength and vitality of Easton’s central business district through volunteer and community driven efforts. These efforts will focus on enhancing the quality of life in the downtown, solidifying Easton’s identity as a “college town” and promoting the uniqueness of our community’s history, architecture, diverse culture and riverfront location. Through these efforts the EMSI aims to increase consumer business, build the retail, restaurant and professional services base and make downtown Easton the natural gathering place for the greater Easton community.
The Easton Main Street Initiative covers a 20 square block area bound by the Delaware River on the east, the Lehigh River to the south, the Bushkill Creek to the north and Sixth Street to the west. This downtown area coincides with our nationally recognized historic district and the service area of the Easton Ambassadors.
Easton Main Street Initiative is a program of the Greater Easton Development Partnership, a register not-for-profit 501(c)3.
