A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held in Buffalo Wednesday night during the Famer's Market to celebrate the city being recently designated as a certified “Main Street Program.”
Marie Verger, with the Buffalo Downtown Association, said the organization has been working toward the certification with help from many, many people.
She explains what being a “Certified Main Street Program” means.
Buffalo Mayor Randy Dyess was one of a handful of local dignitaries that attended the ribbon-cutting. He said the communities involved in the Main Street Program are working hard to improve their downtowns and the business climate in their hometowns.
Signage designating Buffalo as a Main Street Community will be permanently installed near the parking lot on the corner of Fort and Main Streets and at the south end of Main Street to greet visitors to the downtown corridor.
