2010 Annual Report


Downtown Lakewood is a volunteer-based program dedicated to the revitalization of Lakewood’s historic business district. We are a nationally accredited Main Street™ Community as designated by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and Heritage Ohio.

As a Main Street community we are committed to a proven, disciplined approach to revitalizing our downtown area using the Four Point Approach.™  This Main Street Approach gradually builds on existing resources and fosters improved community leadership and support on behalf of the Central Business District for the long term. Downtown Lakewood is defined geographically as the business district along Detroit Avenue bounded by Bunts Road on the east end, and Arthur Avenue on the west.
